Command releasebot runs a Go release.
The release happens in two stages:
preparestage checks preconditions, and if needed makes the release commit and mails it for review;
releasestage runs after the release commit (if any) is merged, and it tags, builds and cleans up the release.
At the moment only minor and beta releases are supported.
The user running a release will need:
- A GitHub personal access token with the
~/.github-issue-token, and an account with write access to golang/go
- gomote access and a token in your name
- gcloud application default credentials, and an account with GCS access to golang-org for bucket golang-release-staging
release-managergroup membership on Gerrit
NOTE: all but the Gerrit permission are ensured by the bot on startup.
Releasebot manages the process of defining, packaging, and publishing Go releases. It is a work in progress; right now it only handles beta and minor (point) releases, but eventually we want it to handle major releases too.
