Once Padre or one of the plugins is released based on the following process it is uploaded to CPAN. There are various way Repackaging and Distributing those modules.
Release of Padre
As of release 0.21 we started a rotation of release managers for Padre. As of August 2009 we started a monthly rotation of release managers. See schedule below. See Release_History
- Obtain co-maintenance permissions for all of the namespaces in the Padre distribution. Talk to Gábor Szabó (szabgab), Adam Kennedy (Alias), or Steffen Müller (tsee) about this.
- cd to trunk/Padre
- Make sure the Changes file is up to date and manually update if necessary, add the vX.XX Date string at the top (commit)
- run perl ../tools/tidy_pm_files.pl that will apply blessed padre style in every module. (commit)
- run perl ../tools/update_version_number.pl VERSION that will update the version number in every module and report if there was no VERSION entry in a module. Those need to be fixed. (commit)
- run perl ../tools/release.pl --revision REV --version VERSION [--tag] will try to create a distribution using a temporary directory and copy the resulting Padre-X.XX.tar.gz in the current directory. The optional --tag flag will also create a tag in SVN. So the release manager first can run it dry and when she is sure it creates a good release can run it again to also tag it in SVN.
- Upload to http://perlide.org/download/source/ (needs to be done by Gabor)
- try installing it using pip, tell people on IRC #padre about it
- Upload to PAUSE
- Send announcement to padre-dev mailing list
- Send announcement to padre-news mailing list (Gabor might need to send the message but at leas he needs to approve it after you sent it)
- Submit announcement to http://use.perl.org/ or some other well-read blog (e.g. one that is syndicated on Iron Man and on http://blogs.padre.perlide.org/ )
- Update the Release History
- Add the version number to the list of versions in Trac. A trac admin needs to do this:
- Go to Admin/Versions? in the "Name:" box type in the version number eg. 0.45, click on "Add"
- Select the radio box on the right hand side of the newly added line and click on "Apply changes"
- Important: Assign primary maintainer status to Gabor (PAUSE ID 'SZABGAB') for all namespaces that are new in the current release.
- Log into your PAUSE account
- Click "View Permissions" in the menu
- Note all Padre::* classes for which you are listed as "first-come" (as opposed to "co-maint").
- Click "Change Permissions" in the menu
- Under "2. You are primary maintainer:" select any one or all of the Padre::* namespaces that appear in the list view.
- Click Select for "2.1 Pass primary maintainership status to somebody else (giving it up at the same time)"
- Make sure all Padre::* namespaces are selected in the new listbox.
- Enter "SZABGAB" in the text field.
- Click "Pass Maintainership Status".
- You will automatically become co-maintainer instead of primary maintainer of the classes in question.
- ppm creation:
- tar xzf Padre-X.XX.tar.gz
- perl Makefile.PL
- make ppm will create a Padre.ppd file and a Padre.tar.gz file
- change the other files in /trunk/ppm according to the README there
- upload Padre.tar.gz as Padre-X.XX.tar.gz to http://perlide.org/download/ppm/
- upload the other files from trunk/ppm to http://perlide.org/download/ppm/
- Create executable for Linux:
- make exe
- Upload to http://perlide.org/download/binary/
Release of Padre using a branch
In order to allow a few days of stabilization of Padre and to allow the translators to catch up while allowing everyone else to freely work on the main trunk we can start releasing from a branch. Trying to capture the process here.
- A few (2 ?) days before the planned release date the release manager creates a copy:
- run perltidy on the trunk
- svn cp http://svn.perlide.org/padre/trunk/Padre http://svn.perlide.org/padre/branches/Padre-X.XX (replace X.XX with the future version number)
- Anyone who wants to work on the release branch can
- cd trunk/Padre
- svn switch http://svn.perlide.org/padre/branches/Padre-X.XX .
- then every commit will go to the branch while the plugins are still from trunk
- the release can be done here but probably it is better NOT to run the perl tidy on the branch as it will make merging very difficult
- do the regular release process as above
- when finished merge the branch back to trunk:
- svn switch http://svn.perlide.org/padre/trunk/Padre .
- svn log --stop-on-copy http://svn.perlide.org/padre/branches/Padre-X.XX
- Take the FIRST and LAST revision number from that log
- svn merge -rFIRST:LAST http://svn.perlide.org/padre/branches/Padre-X.XX/ .
- svn commit -m'merge -rFIRST:LAST http://svn.perlide.org/padre/branches/Padre-X.XX/'
- now you can remove the release branch:
- svn rm http://svn.perlide.org/padre/branches/Padre-X.XX/
Release of Plugins and other packages
The packages can use either Makefile.PL (Module::Install) or Build.PL (Module::Build). We have not tested the below process with ExtUtils::Makemaker
No need to keep MANIFEST and META.yml in version control!
Add to MANIFEST.SKIP
# avoid pot files (gettext) \.pot$
If you are using Module::Build
Don't add a Makefile.PL to the version control as it will be created during packaging
- cd to the directory of the plugin or the package
- run perl ../tools/tidy_pm_files.pl (commit)
- run perl ../tools/update_version_number.pl VERSION and update Changes (commit)
- run perl ../tools/release.pl REV VERSION [--tag]
- upload to PAUSE
The current release manager is Ryan52 starting from 0.46 (Sept 2009) for about one month
The exact release schedule is decided by the current release manager, below are the general guidelines
Padre is released to CPAN about once every week when trunk seems to be in a stable state.
Once a month we set aside a version for a "packaged" release for which we use a longer time on the release branch.
We take the latest regular release and base the "packaged" release right on the regular release. So for example we have 0.43, 0.44, regular releases then based on 0.44 we create a release branch for 0.45 We give the translators a few days to catch up on this branch. That time will also allow people to give feedback on 0.44 so we can fix really critical issues on the 0.45 branch.
This release should be scheduled just a few days after Rakudo is released.
Once it is done CSJewell creates the windows distributions based on Strawberry Perl.
That means we have these "packaged" and translated releases by ~ 20-25th of every month.
