PTP/release announcement


Reminders for announcing a PTP release.

For information about building a release, see Release Engineering

Things to do

  • Enable PTP-specific update site with content (possibly moving most, but not all content prior to release day, so mirrors can populate)
    • This is located at:
    • Copy there, Unpack there
    • Copy as well to downloads/tools/ptp/builds - make a new e.g. 8.0.x directory, and copy everything there; this is our archive for the release
    • Add a link on the build wiki page PTP/builds for the release and point to the archive page (previous bullet) - for 6.0.x this is under Release Builds
  • Email to mailing lists: ptp-dev, ptp-user, ptp-announce, photran
  • Wiki: update builds page to include the release date and (possibly) make a new builds page for the next release
    • Pointer to content in ptp help (doc.user and help) plugins - see below

Things to do for big releases e.g. SR0, SR1, SR2

  • Docs
    • On doc.php - documentation page add links to appropriate info
  • Update PTP help jars for
  • Update New & Noteworthy on wiki
  • Review Release Notes - clone for a new major release
  • PTP Wiki FAQ, etc probably need updating with info about "latest" release etc.
  • Test updating e.g. just what's included in EPP Parallel Package
  • Update PTP/Committers_and_Contributors page on each major release (June)
