Release Checklist

This release checklist is based on the Pocoo Release Management Workflow.

This assumes ~/.pypirc file exists with the following fields (variations) are fine.

[distutils]
index-servers =
    pypi
    test

[pypi]
username:<username>
password:<password>

[test]
repository:https://testpypi.python.org/pypi
username:<username>
password:<password>
  • Review git status for missing files.

  • Verify the latest Travis CI builds pass.

  • make open-docs and review changelog.

  • Ensure the target release is set correctly in pulsar/__init__.py (version will be a devN variant of target release).

  • make clean && make lint && make tests

  • make release

    • Review Test PyPI site for errors.
    • Test intall pip install -i https://testpypi.python.org/pypi pulsar-app.

    This process will push packages to test PyPI, allow review, publish to production PyPI, tag the git repository, and push the tag upstream. If changes are needed, this can be broken down into steps such as:

    • make release-local
    • make push-release
