Test release

Instructions for doing test releases of debian-edu

  1. make sure debian-edu/etch is in a releaseable state
  2. Prepeare the iso's.
  3. send announcement email.

Prepearing the iso

The release consists of the latest non -test versions of the iso's, make sure that the images are updated before the release. One might also use http://ftp.skolelinux.org/skolelinux/needs_love.html, to verify that the regular iso's dont lag far behind the -test isos. If packages should be updated, send a request on ftpmaster@skolelinux.no.

Remember to make sure the release name is updated in debian-edu-install, files debian-edu-preseed and debian/debian-edu-install.postinst.

You should also do a simple test install to verify that there are no very obvious bugs.

  • copy iso's from cd-*/ to skolelinux-cd/ and name it something like File: debian-edu_etch-$arch-test$nn.iso
  • Edit the MD5SUM file, and verify that the file you copied matches the md5sum.
  • the files would be available from ftp://ftp.skolelinux.no/skolelinux-cd

Announcement Email

A important part of the test release is the Announcement email. Hopefully the DebianEdu/ReleaseNotes have been updated thru the development process. If not you will have to write it yourself. when the iso's are available. Send the announcement email to the addresses listed at the end of DebianEdu/ReleaseNotes In order to get the formating identical you can use
