Instructions for vpp release manager

  1. It is strongly recommended you do this a day or two prior to release if you are relatively sure all needed code for the release is in
  2. Lay tag for “v16.09” on patch that is “last patch in series" (see Pushing and Testing a Tag but note NO -rcX suffix!!!)
  3. “remerge” patch on that commit - so it creates various artifacts.
    1. Do remerge as per this picture
  4. Once remerge jobs have successfully completed open case with LF staff to move artifacts to release repo
    1. email helpdesk@fd.io using the email template below, substituting ${release number} with the release number (like 17.01) and ${release number without '.'} with the release number without '.' (like 1701).
  5. Wait for LF infra staff to indicate they have completed the case
  6. Test install behaviour on currently supported platforms (ie Centos7.2, Ubuntu Trusty, Ubuntu Xenial) - use instructions for here to install 'release' packages and make sure you get a runnable version for ${release number} using release artifacts
    1. Install binary packages and verify VPP starts on supported VMs without any prior VPP installed
    2. Repeat above but upgrading from prior release of VPP to new release
  7. Contact csit-dev to ask how they want to test the new artifacts.
