 * Notify the DebianCD Team that the PointRelease is done  * Notify the [[Teams/DebianCd|Debian CD]] Team that the PointRelease is done

<!> This is a SRM's TODO list, which might not be authorative or complete.

The following things need to be done for a point release:

Before a PointRelease

  • Move remaining (suitable) packages from p-u-new to p-u
  • Make sure removal bugs are assigned to release.d.o in the BTS and mentioned in the queue-viewer
    • /org/{o-,}p-u-new/COMMENTS/REMOVALS
  • Check with ?KernelTeam for specials with the Kernel

  • Check with d-i team for specials with this update (check esp. if old versions of d-i should be purged if new versions enter $suite's d-i area)
  • Check if ReleaseNotes need to be updated. If yes, coordinate with translators

  • Check if the SecurityTeam's debtags need to be updated. If so, coordinate with EnricoZini.

  • Coordinate date with the FTP-Team, Debian-CD and ?PressTeam

    • Have an FTP-master ready/notified/available 3 weeks before the Point Release
  • Make sure base-files has been uploaded to update /etc/debian-version
  • Send an announcement of the date to debian-release, SecurityTeam, ?PressTeam, Debian-CD, debian-live, debian-security@ldo

  • Prepare ?PressAnnouncement

    • coordinate with d-i team for text for d-i changes
    • Generate the mail using point-release-mail.
  • Review that security archive is in sync with stable + p-u
  • Review that p-u is built on all arches for all packages
  • Prepare the website changes

During the PointRelease

  • Check with the FTP-Masters
    • List of packages that needs to be released
    • List of packages (including bug numbers) that need to be removed
      • /srv/ftp-master.debian.org/queue/$queue/COMMENTS/REMOVALS , displayed on queue-viewer
    • Need d-i to be moved from p-u?
    • Need to decruft?
  • Check /srv/ftp-master.debian.org/ftp/dists/$codename/ChangeLog
  • Check if /srv/ftp-master.debian.org/ftp/README was updated.
  • Sign the release file

After the PointRelease
