Standard Release Process

Following procedure is generic description of release process of firmware for supported hardware platforms. Precise steps and any difference from standard process are described in platform specific documentation.

Description here is, intentionally, Open Source Firmware framework agnostics and should be maintained in that way.

Process steps

  1. Checkout new branch <platform>/rel_vX.Y.Z from recent commit on <platfrom>/release - to understand versioning scheme please read Versioning section
  2. Merge current <platform>/develop to <platform>/rel_vX.Y.Z
  3. Run platform regression test suite
  4. Fix all required issues and repeat point 3 until fixed - this doesn't mean all tests pass, this mean that approved set passed
  5. If results are accepted merge it to <platform>/release branch
  6. Add tag, which should trigger CI and publish binaries
  7. Merge release branch to develop
