This documents the how and when to release
Any time there are fixes or additions ready to go, they should be released. Releases are cheap. If it's been more than a month and there are changes in master, consider releasing them.
If the changes are entirely on the CSS / JS cosmetic side, things are usually pretty safe to release as long as they have been spot checked against a couple of projects. (The gate does the nova tree automatically).
If new warnings have been added since the last release, care should be taken to:
- Alert the mailing list 2 days before the release about the new warning coming in (that should give them time to go non enforcing or fix the issue).
* Ensure that you bump at least the Y in the version number (X.Y.Z). New warnings are not a Z level release.
Add a line with the version number desired, the git has of the commit that should be that release.
