updated with information from the gramps 3.3.0 release
'''What to do for a release'''
These notes are based on version 3.0
.3, released in October 2008. The steps assume a working <tt> gramps30</tt> source directory. See [[Running a development version of Gramps]] if this is not the case.
Run the following steps:
Using the <tt>Changelog</tt> files generated with <tt>svn2cl</tt> in the step above, edit and update the <tt>NEWS</tt> file.
Commit the NEWS file. Note the svn commit revision number, which you'll need in the next step when you create the subversion tag:
svn commit -m "update for 3.0
.3 release" Committed revision 11159.
==Working on the tag==
Check out the new tag:
svn co https://gramps.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/gramps/tags/gramps-3.0
.3 cd gramps-3.0 .3
Modify <tt>configure.in</tt> to indicate an official release:
Note you should now have the file <tt>gramps-3.0
.3.tar.gz</tt>, approximately 5.5 MB in size.
