Discussion about release.py moved from the main page

Note that to release a bundle, all you need to do is upload it to activities.sugarlabs.org. No need to post a source tarball anywhere assuming it's in gitorious. And I'm not sure release.py is well maintained currently. Wade 13:52, 4 November 2009 (UTC)
4. I added the pootle user as a committer.
5. Where should I put the .xo bundle? And the source tarball?
there is a script for generating and posting changes that covers all of these details.

I had a bit of trouble pushing a new change to gitorious today. I had to use the --force flag for some reason. We suspect it may have something to do with the fact that one of the files I pushed is a binary file. Will report back what I find. (Seems to work fine when there are no binary files to add/push.)

git push -fv

I have been trying to use release.py with no luck so far either. (It has a dependency on the feedparser python library, which is easy enough to install.) It complained about a mismatched tag, so I used the --version flag to force the same version number as in my activity.info file. Then I got this error:

nothing added to commit but untracked files present (use "git add" to track)
Traceback (most recent call last):
 File "../release.py", line 325, in <module>
   main()
 File "../release.py", line 314, in main
   release.tag()
 File "../release.py", line 170, in tag
   subprocess.check_call(['git', 'commit', '-a', '-m' , '%s' % message])
 File "/usr/lib/python2.5/subprocess.py", line 462, in check_call
   raise CalledProcessError(retcode, cmd)
subprocess.CalledProcessError: Command '['git', 'commit', '-a', '-m', 'Release 26']' returned non-zero exit status 1

Is this because I did the git commit and git push by hand before running release.py?
