Cutting a release
This page lists the commands needed to cut a release. These commands will typically be issued one time per release, presumably by the VisIt project leader.
|What you want||How you do it|
|To create a branch for the release candidate from the trunk||Script: mk_rc|
|To do development on the RC||See here|
|To declare the release finished.. The final version of the code for that release is captured in the tags directory and the branch corresponding to the RC is deleted.||Script: finalize_release|
