Dear wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page "Logging Wiki" for change notification.

The page "Log4j2ReleaseGuide" has been deleted by RalphGoers:

https://wiki.apache.org/logging/Log4j2ReleaseGuide?action=diff&rev1=44&rev2=45

- = Log4j 2.x Release Process =
  
- Before beginning your first release, take the following preparatory steps:
- 
-  1. Run {{{mvn clean install}}} on the project to make sure it will build cleanly.
-  1. Run {{{mvn -P rat -DskipTests verify}}} to verify all the licenses are valid.
-  1. Login to http://repository.apache.org using your ASF credentials. Click on your username
in the upper-right-hand corner and click Profile. Make sure your email address is correct.
If not, contact Infra to get it corrected. You will be unable to get the necessary notifications
until it's corrected.
-  1. Make sure you have a 4096-bit RSA PGP key pair for code signing. The public key should
be published in a public repository, preferably http://pgp.mit.edu/. Also make sure the public
key is published to http://www.apache.org/dist/logging/KEYS.
-  1. Edit {{{~/.m2/settings.xml}}} to add the corresponding private key and its passphrase
to your settings. Also add the Apache Subversion server credentials and Sonatype repository
credentials to your settings (this is your ASF credentials). You'll want to blank out the
passphrase after each release and fill it back in prior to each release so that it isn't compromised.

- Once you've done this, take the following steps to perform a release:
- 
-  1. Edit {{{pom.xml}}} and change the {{{Log4jReleaseVersion}}} property to the version
you are releasing.
-  1. Make a fresh Git clone of the master branch of {{{https://git-wip-us.apache.org/repos/asf/logging-log4j2.git}}}
-  1. Update {{{src/changes/announcement.vm}}}
-  1. Run {{{mvn -P release-notes generate-resources}}} to create the release notes.
-  1. Update {{{src/changes/changes.xml}}} with the release date.
-  1. Pick a logo from src/site/resources/logos. Edit it with Gimp to add the release version
number and save it as a png. Copy the saved logo to src/site/resources/images/logo.png.
-  1. Run {{{git add, git commit, and git push}}} to commit the {{{RELEASE-NOTES.txt}}} file
that was just generated along with the other files that were modified.
-  1. Run {{{mvn site}}} followed by {{{mvn site:stage -DstagingDirectory=$HOME/log4j}}} where
{{{$HOME}}} is your home directory and verify that the site looks good.
-  1. Run {{{mvn -P apache-release release:prepare release:perform -DreleaseVersion=n.n -DdevelopmentVersion=n.n-SNAPSHOT
-Dtag=log4j-n.n-rcn}}} to start the release. Enter the password to your signing key when prompted.
-  1. Login to http://repository.apache.org using your ASF credentials. Select "Staging Repositories"
then check the {{{org.apache.logging}}} repository and close it.
-  1. Check out the release tag that was created via the Maven release plugin using {{{git
checkout tags/tagname}}}.
-  1. Run {{{mvn site}}} in the tag directory. When that completes run {{{mvn site:stage -DstagingDirectory=$HOME/log4j}}}
where {{{$HOME}}} is your home directory.
-  1. Zip the contents of {{{$HOME/log4j}}} with {{{zip -r log4j.zip log4j}}}. Commit the
site to your github.io account. 
-  1. Copy the distribution archive files from log4j-distribution/target to where https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/dev/logging/log4j/
is checked out on your machine.
-     a. Generate the md5 checksum of the bin and source archive files using {{{md5 apache-log4j-2.x-site.zip
> apache-log4j-2.x-xxx.zip.md5}}}, {{{md5sum apache-log4j-2.x-xxx.zip > apache-log4j-2.x-xxx.zip.md4}}},
or {{{gpg --print-md MD5 apache-log4j-2.x-xxx.zip > apache-log4j-2.x-xxx.zip.md5}}}.
-     a. Generate the sha1 checksum of the bin and source archive files using {{{sha apache-log4j-2.x-site.zip
> apache-log4j-2.x-xxx.zip.sha1}}}, {{{shasum apache-log4j-2.x-xxx.zip > apache-log4j-2.x-xxx.zip.sha1}}},
or {{{gpg --print-md SHA1 apache-log4j-2.x-xxx.zip > apache-log4j-2.x-xxx.zip.sha1}}}.
-  1. Add the site zip to where https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/dev/logging/log4j/ is checked
out on your machine.
-     a. Sign the site ZIP file using {{{gpg --armor --output apache-log4j-2.x-site.zip.asc
--detach-sig apache-log4j-2.x-site.zip}}}. You can use the {{{--local-user [key ID]}}} option
(it must come before {{{--detach-sig}}}) to specify the exact key to use when signing the
ZIP file.
-     a. Generate the md5 checksum of the site ZIP using {{{md5 apache-log4j-2.x-site.zip
> apache-log4j-2.x-site.zip.md5}}}, {{{md5sum apache-log4j-2.x-site.zip > apache-log4j-2.x-site.zip.md4}}},
or {{{gpg --print-md MD5 apache-log4j-2.x-site.zip > apache-log4j-2.x-site.zip.md5}}}.
-     a. Generate the sha1 checksum of the site zip using {{{sha apache-log4j-2.x-site.zip
> apache-log4j-2.x-site.zip.sha1}}}, {{{shasum apache-log4j-2.x-site.zip > apache-log4j-2.x-site.zip.sha1}}},
or {{{gpg --print-md SHA1 apache-log4j-2.x-site.zip > apache-log4j-2.x-site.zip.sha1}}}.
-  1. Generate the release vote email:
-     a. Create the email addressed to dev@logging.apache.org. Sending the email to the PMC
is not necessary.
-     a. Copy the changes in the release from {{{RELEASE-NOTES.txt}}} into the email.
-     a. Provide a link to the tag, web site on http://people.apache.org, and the artifacts
in the Nexus repository.
-     a. Provide the command to download all the artifacts: {{{wget -e robots=off --cut-dirs=3
-r -p -np --no-check-certificate $LINK}}} where {{{$LINK}}} is the URL to the repository you
just closed (plus the {{{org/apache/logging/log4j/}}} path appended).
-     a. Provide a list of the artifacts by copying from the email notification sent from
the Nexus Repository.<<FootNote(Nexus has not been sending this email for the past few
releases at least)>>
-  1. If the release vote fails proceed as described in the section below, otherwise if it
passes:
-     a. Create a new tag named log4j-n.n from the log4j-n.n-rcn tag by changing to the changing
to the directory containing the source for the release and performing {{{git tag -a log4j-n.n
-m "Release n.n of Log4j"}} followed by {{{git push --tags}}}
-  1. The following steps must be performed by a PMC member:
-     a. Checkout https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/release/logging/log4j. 
-     a. Create the release directory under the {{{log4j}}} directory.
-     a. Move all the distribution artifacts from the distribution dev location to that directory.
-     a. Perform an {{{svn add}}} of the release directory.
-     a. Commit the release to Subversion.
-     a. Login to reporter.apache.org and add the release version and date.
-  1. The following steps can then be taken by whomever started the release:
-     a. Delete the core-its project from the Nexus repository.
-     a. Release the remaining artifacts in the Nexus Repository.
-  1. Wait 12-24 hours (or after the distribution artifacts have been propagated to the mirrors
and the Maven artifacts have been propagated to the Central Repository), and then the following
steps must be performed by a PMC member:
-     a. Perform {{{svn delete}}} on the '''''previous''''' release directory for the same
version under the {{{log4j}}} directory (https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/release/logging/log4j).
-     a. Commit the delete to Subversion.
-     a. See ManagingTheWebSite regarding sub-projects.
-     a. Copy the release web site from the local directory where it was deployed into the
sub-project directory and make it be the current link. 
-  1. After the website is updated, send the release announcement email. This should be sent
out to dev@logging.apache.org, log4j-user@logging.apache.org, private@logging.apache.org,
and general@logging.apache.org.
-  2. Send the release announcement to announcements@apache.org using your apache.org email
address.
- 
- If the release fails before sending the vote email:
-  1. Login to http://repository.apache.org using your ASF credentials. Select "Staging Repositories"
then check the org.apache.logging repository and drop it.
-  1. Revert any changes that have not been committed.
-  1. Restart the release process as the same release candidate.
- 
- If the release fails after sending the vote email:
-  1. Login to http://repository.apache.org using your ASF credentials. Select "Staging Repositories"
then check the org.apache.logging repository and drop it.
-  1. Rename the release tag in Git to add {{{rcn}}} to the end of the tag. '''Note that this
may not be possible in Git depending on configuration'''
