Subject UPDATED Apache NiFi 0.5.0 Release Candidate Helper
Date Fri, 12 Feb 2016 23:37:35 GMT
Team (including Aldrin),

Here again is guidance to help those interested in validating/verifying the
release so they can vote. Added a step, which is verifying the branch point
for the release.

# Download latest KEYS file:

# Import keys file:
  gpg --import KEYS

# [optional] Clear out local maven artifact repository

# Pull down nifi-0.5.0 source release artifacts for review:


# Verify the signature
  gpg --verify

# Verify the hashes (md5 and sha1) match the source and what was
provided in the vote email thread

# Unzip

# Verify the build works including release audit tool (RAT) checks and the
introduced Groovy unit tests
  cd nifi-0.5.0
  mvn clean install -Pcontrib-check,groovy-unit-test

# Verify the contents contain a good readme, NOTICE, and LICENSE.

# Verify the git commit ID is correct

# Verify the RC was branched off the correct git commit ID

# Look at the resulting convenience binary as found in nifi-assembly/target

# Make sure the readme, LICENSE, and NOTICE are present and correct

# Run the resulting convenience binary and make sure it works as expected

# Send a response to the vote thread indicating a +1, 0, -1 based on your

A much wordier version of this is here:

Thank you for your time and effort to validate the release!
