Process for providing post-release notes for tck users

    Details

      Description

      There is a README.txt file that is checked in to the top-level of trunk, releases, and branches. It is distributed with each source package. To provide release notes that become available after the release is built, I suggest adding the line "View the latest version of this file online.", with a link to the online version (which of course will have this self-referential line).

      Each branch has its own version of README.txt. When a maintenance release (e.g. 2.1) needs to be updated, we add a new bug fix branch (e.g. 2.1.1). We don't create a release from this branch, but tell users to check it out of svn. When we provide a bug fix release to a maintenance release we need to update README.txt in the parent branch, adding the following line: "This release has been deprecated. Please use version 2.x.y.", with a link to the svn web interface for that version.

          Converted to html, reorganized content. This version is for trunk, but will be merged to the 2.1.1 branch and edited there to include information about changes to the 2.1 release.
