Subject Re: Incubator release checklist
Date Mon, 10 Sep 2018 17:14:13 GMT
Releases are invariably created from a particular commit from the source control system (usually
a git commit these days). I think it’s important to check that the contents of the source
tarball match the contents of the source control system at that commit. (To do this, I unpack
the tar file in one directory, checkout the source tree in another directory, and do a “diff
-r” command.) We rely on the source control system for the provenance of the release, but
this process is broken if we don’t check that two are in sync.

This process also catches cases where the release manager has accidentally included generated
files not under source control.

So, I think this should be added to the check list.
