release - convenient script for "releasing" an upstream project for Ubuntu
Note that you must prepare the current directory by first running release-build(1), before running release(1). This script will work on a bzr(1) branch with debian packaging in the current directory, officially "releasing" it. It will: * automatically determine the project/package name and version by parsing the debian/changelog file * update the changelog timestamp * tag the release in bzr * debcommit(1) with an appropriate release message * gpg(1) sign the original tarball * open the next release for development After the script performs these actions, the final steps to push the release are printed to the screen, for the user to copy-and-paste. These steps include: * the 'bzr push' command * the URL to the Launchpad 'addrelease' project action * the dputP(1) commands for pushing to PPAs and the official Ubuntu archive
release-build(1), bzr(1), debcommit(1), gpg(1), dputP(1)
