Subject [Commons Wiki] Update of "UsingNexus" by OliverHeger
Date Wed, 22 Aug 2012 18:18:53 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Commons Wiki" for change notification.

The "UsingNexus" page has been changed by OliverHeger:

Added section about post release cleanup.

+ === Post Release Cleanup ===
+ The actual release task is now complete, however there are some remaining steps to do some
cleanup and to prepare the next development iteration.
+  * '''Remove Obsolete Releases''': Unless old versions are especially required, remove them
from the dist directory. This will cause the files to also be deleted from the mirrors and
save them some diskspace as well as simplifying things for users. Note that the contents of
the /www/ directory is regularly copied to /www/
and from there transferred to host Deleting files from the standard distribution
directories does ''not'' delete them from the archive dist directories so users will still
be able to access old files even when they are not available from the mirrors.
+  * '''Update JIRA''': Mark the release as released in the JIRA project admin and CLOSE all
issues RESOLVED in this release. Make sure the FIX VERSION for all issues closed with this
release is set correctly to this version. If this has not already been done, create a JIRA
version for the next release. 
+  * '''Update DOAP file''': Update the component's [[|DOAP]]
file with details of the released version:
+ {{{
+       <release>
+         <Version>
+           <name>x.y.z</name>
+           <created>yyyy-mm-dd</created>
+           <revision>x.y.z</revision>
+         </Version>
+       </release> 
+ }}}
+  * '''Update changes.xml''': If the component uses the maven changes plugin to maintain
its changelog, fill in the release date for the just released version and create a new release
element for the next release.
+  * '''Create the relase tag''': Copy the tag of the RC whose vote succeeded to the final
release tag, e.g.
+ {{{
+ svn copy
+ -m "Tagging 1.2 release"
+ }}}
