KOffice tagging HOWTO.
Recently, we've had two people preparing KOffice releases: one tagging
trunk or the branch, the other tagging the l10n files. The former is
done using the tag_all script, see 'TAGGING TRUNK/BRANCHES' below.
The latter is done using the koffice-l10n script, which can be used to
tag koffice-l10n without downloading the entire l10n tree. This is
described in TAGGING L10N below.
Things to look out for:
The tag_all script will create the tags/koffice/x.y.z directory, if it
doesn't exist. So will koffice-l10n. Co-ordinate with anyone else
tagging to avoid two people doing the `svn mkdir', otherwise you'll
get conflicts. Particularly, if someone else is doing the l10n tag,
you should check that they are not already preparing their tag because
l10n tagging takes longer.
1. Get the latest sources with "svn up" and check if builds with
unsermake and automake. Also check if it compiles with
--enable-final and with builddir!=srcdir.
2. Checkout trunk/KDE/kde-common/release. The files in that directory
will support you in creating the tarball.
3. Create directories as per checklist, under the directory that
contains the scripts from kde-common/release;
cd release
mkdir clean sources-old sources dirty test build done
4. Change the version in the "common" file.
5. Change the version of koffice in the "version" script that is
called from tag_all;
5. Make sure the "modules" file only contains koffice.
echo "koffice" > modules
6. Use the "checkout" script to create a KOffice checkout of the
named brached in the "clean/koffice" directory.
You may need to define (where mysvnusername needs to be replaced
with your kde-svn username);
export SVNUSER="mysvnusername"
export SVNPROTOCOL="https"
7. Update to new version-number, e.g. at
8. Run the "fixuifiles" script (from kdesdk).
cd clean/koffice
find . -type f -name "*.ui" -exec fixuifiles {} ';'
9. Commit all changes.
10. Run the "tag_all" script.
11. Now it's simply a matter of uploading and signing, as per
12. Also don't forget to add a new section at for the new
The instructions for this are at the top of the koffice-l10n script.
The script avoids downloading the entire l10n tree, but does end up
making hundreds of connections to the svn server.
It seems it _might_ be a good idea make the script checkout from
anonsvn first. For this, simply change the line that begins "BASE="
in the script, then use:
svn switch --relocate \
svn:// \
... after running the script. However, as the script stands, it just
checkout from server. The problem with this method is
that copying the admin directory in scripts doesn't get added to the
tag. Fix the script, or copy it manually if you use this technique.
Note that `svn switch --relocate' is _very_ slow for what it appears
to be doing. If you're not convinced it's doing anything, the value
from the following should be decreasing:
find clean/tags-koffice -type d -a ! -regex .*svn.*| \
(xargs -I{} svn info {})|grep ^URL.*anon|wc
If you have problems when running ./pack, you should ensure that you
have the latest customizations directory from kdelibs/kdoctools in the
current KDE branch.
