This is how a release is expected to be done

Pre-release process

Make sure the lead developers agree that the tree is ready for release. Assuming all necessary patches are merged (make sure the man page is up-to-date!), proceed to the next step

Preparing the tree

Increasing the version number

Edit the Makefile and change the line

RELEASE := 0.9.6

to the number of the release. Commit this single-line change with the following changelog:

Increase flashrom release number to 0.9.6

Use Signed-off-by and Acked-by as usual.

Tagging the release

This should be done outside any flashrom directory.

Make sure the version number commit has been pushed to the svn tree. Run

svn cp svn://coreboot.org/flashrom/trunk svn://coreboot.org/flashrom/tags/flashrom-0.9.6

(replace 0.9.6 with the intended release number) and use the following changelog:

Tag flashrom 0.9.6

(replace 0.9.6 with the intended release number). Use Signed-off-by and Acked-by as usual.

Creating the release tarball

This should be done outside any flashrom directory. The flashrom_release script is in the next subsection

svn co svn://coreboot.org/flashrom/tags/flashrom-0.9.6
cd flashrom-0.9.6
flashrom_release 0.9.6

(replace 0.9.6 with the intended release number).
