How to cut an Orchestra Release

Based on the Apache MyFaces [CoreRelease115] document.

Step by Step

Building the artifacts to be released

Vote on release

Send the following email to the developers list:


I have run the necessary tasks to get the following artifacts released:
(all artifacts are deployed to the MyFaces staging repository)

 * Apache MyFaces Orchestra Maven [1]
 * Apache MyFaces Orchestra Core [2]

The tar.gz and zip archives are deployed at [3]

Please have a look at these artifacts and vote:
[ ] +1 for community members who have reviewed the bits
[ ] +0
[ ] -1 for fatal flaws that should cause these bits not to be released,
      and why..............

When Voting is Complete

  • Post the result of the vote - if negative stop here, else move on
  • copy the assembly to /x1/www/www.apache.org/dist/myfaces/binaries/
  • adjust the orchestra-current links in /x1/www/www.apache.org/dist/myfaces
  • manually copy the maven artifacts from the staging repository [1]
  • add info about the new release to the website and change the download path
  • check if artifacts can be downloaded (= are mirrored already)
  • deploy the site
  • now wait a day or so until everything has been mirrored, in the meantime


cp -rp /www/people.apache.org/builds/myfaces/m2-staging-repository/org/apache/myfaces/orchestra/* /www/people.apache.org/repo/m2-ibiblio-rsync-repository/org/apache/myfaces/orchestra/.

After Release is Complete

Send the following email to:

The Apache MyFaces Orchestra team is pleased to announce the release of
Apache MyFaces Orchestra Core 1.x.

Get a full overview at Orchestra's homepage [1].

The distribution is available at
