The point of this document is to describe all steps required to make a proper release of the yubikey-personalization project.
Making a release requires the following packages:
make, git, gnupg, git2cl
which can be installed (under Ubuntu) by running:
sudo apt-get install make git gnupg git2cl
Make sure the doc/ sub-directory uses the latest revision. Confirm with: cd doc && git checkout master && git pull && git diff
Make sure the version number in Makefile has been incremented.
Make sure NEWS describes all changes since the last release. Use https://github.com/Yubico/yubikey-val/commits/master to review.
Change the (unreleased) part in NEWS to (released 20XX-YY-ZZ) and commit that with a note Version Q.P.
Run make release.
Increment version number in Makefile and add a NEWS template for the next release.
