Revision as of 00:01, 19 March 2019 by (Talk | contribs) (What other tasks does Platform Releng do?)

Where are the basics of the Platform build documented?

In Platform Build.

Does that Platform Build document describe the so-called Production Build?

No, not exactly. It forms the heart of the production build, but there are other things done in the production build. Those are described in Platform Build Automated. So in general, anyone wanting to learn or reproduce our build should first read Platform Build and then read Platform Build Automated.

What other tasks does Platform Releng do?

Other tasks are described in several other documents, each has various degrees of accuracy or being up do date:

miscellaneous releng tasks
releng checklists
updating branding
publishing to Maven Central

Are there documents that Platform committers should read or be aware of?

The following are good, though some sections may need to be brought up to date.

the Eclipse Projects rhythm
incrementing version numbers
automated (production) testing
performance testing
