This is just for time tracking. Main ticket is [#6223]
Pending vote on allura-dev. Also waiting for https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/release/allura to work (supposed to be 24hr but is still not working; may need to reopen https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-6660).
Performed some LICENSE and NOTICE cleanup, and created an ASF Release Guidelines document based on feedback on the [VOTE] and [DISCUSS] (plus next two messages) threads.
Added an asf-release.sh script for building the release, which excludes the LICENSE and NOTICE files from the subdirectories, signs and checksums the release, and prompts for the information to fill in the [VOTE] thread template.
Making this public to get some reviews on my LICENSE / NOTICE changes and the release script.
Which commits in https://git-wip-us.apache.org/repos/asf?p=incubator-allura.git;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/cj/6422 exactly are new since last time? (Might want to mention on the non-ticket email thread too)
The release script looks pretty good to me. I'd rather use git archive to make the zip file, rather than using a working copy & excluding files. Working copies could have other files that aren't noticed (hidden by local git ignore settings). Also there is a "1.0.0" hard coded in the email template.
Beyond that I think the script is good to go, the real test is in its usage.
I would like us to put together a 1.0.1 section in the CHANGES file before we run the script though. It'll be a good exercise even though 1.0.0 was never release (and maybe CHANGES should state that fact too)
Changed release script to use git archive and added change log generation.
