Here are the things to do before running through the usual release instructions when preparing a new major release.

Major releases should be preceded by at least one release candidate.

Creating the new branch

  • Create a new branch in the admin section of Gerrit
  • Copy the changelog from the previous stable branch
  • Update the branch name in the "push" target of the Makefile
