EPICS V4 Telecon, 20-Aug-2013
Just one item this week.
0. Preliminaries, 5 mins
1. Release process mechanics. What you actually type and who types it.
I want us to actually do at least the Java "pre" release right in the meeting. That
is, the right people actually type the right things to update hg tags, poms, RELEASE_VERSIONS,
execute makereleaseJars.sh and upload the resulting file.
From the java experience, get comments on how the c++ side shall be packaged for this
Present: AJ, DH, GW, GS, MK, MS, TK
GW: all we need to do now is to tag the modules
GW: intend to do a release during the meeting
GW: what’s the version numbering?
GW: release process. Module developers do everything, and release # is up to module developer.
MK: should we also create branch?
GW: Not required.
AJ: Create a branch, do it once. Prefer to create a branch to do all the work once.
GW: Not agree. 1. may never use the branch any more; 2.
MK: Agree with AJ.
AJ: A branch is helpful to fix bugs on previous release
GW: suggest to create a branch only when needed
MK: Feel easier to have a branch
Prop RESOLUTION: For now, our practice will be to create a branch on a tagged revision
only at the time that is needed to make a bugfix for that revision.
DH: One person has to …., it should be the package releaser
AJ: suggest to revise the release doc
MK: Want a start
MJ: Cloudbee could not do anything

Subtopic: Release name:
Release name shall be of form:
For CPP, we decide that the subdirectory beneath the root, should not have the tag names.
