What to do to release pg_repack
This document is the list of operations to do to release a new pg_repack version. The version number in this document is indicated by $VER: it should be a three-digit dot-separated version, eventually followed by a pre-release string: 1.2.0, 1.2.1, 1.2-dev0, 1.2.0-beta1 are valid version numbers.
In order to release the package you will need accounts on Github and PGXN with the right privileges: contact Daniele Varrazzo to obtain them.
Set the right version number in META.json (note: it's in two different places).
Set the right release_status in META.json: testing or stable.
Commit the above metadata changes.
Create a package running make package. The package will be called dist/pg_repack-$VER.zip.
Verify the packages installs and passes tests with pgxn client:
pgxn install --sudo -- dist/pg_repack-$VER.zip pgxn check dist/pg_repack-$VER.zip
(note that check may require the Postgres bin directory to be added to the path, e.g. PATH=$(pg_config --bindir):$PATH; check the install log to see where pg_repack executable was installed).
Push the code changes on github:
Upload the package on http://manager.pgxn.org/.
Check the uploaded package works as expected; if not fix and push more:
pgxn install --sudo -- pg_repack pgxn check pg_repack
Create a tag, signed if possible:
git tag -a -s ver_$VER
Push the new tag on github:
git push --tags
Upload the docs by pushing in the repos at http://reorg.github.io/pg_repack/. The operations are roughly:
git clone --recursive email@example.com:reorg/reorg.github.com.git cd reorg.github.com make sm make git commit -a -m "Docs upload for release $VER" git push
Check the page http://reorg.github.io/pg_repack/ is right.
Announce the package on firstname.lastname@example.org.
