reno: A New Way to Manage Release Notes


Follow to receive video recommendations   a   A

reno is a tool for managing release notes in projects that support multiple branches of development, and releases, simultaneously. It solves the problem of managing release notes within patches that fix bugs, and makes it easier to cherry-pick changes between branches (allowing backports or forward ports). This talk will cover the requirements, and constraints, that led us to design and build reno. I will also show how to use it to create notes and publish them in your packages and via Sphinx-based documentation. Then I will talk about the impact reno, and the release notes publishing automation, had on our project and release processes.

Editors Note:

I would like to work with open source projects to create a branch of the tree with all of the best videos for your open source project. Please send me an email if you are interested.
