Re: Towards Avatica-Go release ?.?

Hey Julian,

Thanks for the review! The script has also been updated to allow the releaser to select a tag during build (defaults to the latest tag if no tag is entered).

I've pushed the 3.0.0-rc1 tag to the repository. Can you build the artifacts and sign them please? Instructions for building the artifacts are available here:

I'll start a new vote once the artifacts are available.

Thanks again,

I've reviewed it.

Fine to include doc. As a policy I tend not to include anything
non-trivial in later release candidates, to avoid putting bumps in the
road, but documentation is fine.

Can you please review PR #22[1] for calcite-avatica-go?
I also have some documentation fixes in a PR #20[2], and since we are going
to cancel the vote for rc0 and roll rc1, I think it would be a good idea to
merge that PR in too.

I noticed the missing execute bit too. Thanks for the fix, Francis.

I added an 'apache-' prefix to the file names, and removed '-rc0' from
the file names (but not the directory name).

The files for review are here:

Francis, if you are ready, can you please start a vote?

(To be clear, I have not yet thoroughly reviewed the files. Let's do
that during the vote.)

I just noticed that the script `` was not
with the executable bit fixed. I have pushed a commit to fix that, but
you'll need to make it executable to sign the release for 3.0.0-rc0.

The release (3.0.0-rc0) is ready for voting. Do the artifacts need to
uploaded before sending out the release email? If so, can you please
them? Instructions for making and signing release artifacts are here:

Yes, the script isn’t very complicated. We probably need half a dozen
lines of shell script to create the tar.gz file, sign it, and
.sha256 checksums. I don’t mind where you put those lines of shell
as long as the next RM can find them.

The site looks good. It doesn’t have to be perfect before the release
as we can easily update it after the release. I’d change the date in from 2017-08-xx to 2018-04-23. If all goes well the
release could
be announced ~5 working days after the vote starts.

I’m not sure whether "~~~~go” will work. Jekyll markdown is a bit
limited than GitHub markdown. We seem to have to use {% highlight sql
%} for
code sections.

There are probably other issues in the site but we’ll only know when
start running jekyll to build and deploy the avatica site.

Hey Julian,

The code is in a releasable state. A few questions:
- Building a binary of a library in Go is not useful/meaningful. For
the release, we just need to tar gz the git repo and sign it. Do you
need a script for this? Otherwise we can write the instructions
somewhere in
the site/ directory.

- Still need to write the release notes. Can you have a look at to see if I have
structured the site/ directory correctly? The PR is a bit stale, but
shouldn't be too much work to get it up to date.

Maybe write a shell script that creates the files, and a “howto”

time to
create signed artifacts.

I think we'll be able to make a release by the end of the week.

I am happy to be the release manager for this one.

The latest version of Avatica is 2.3.1 under Boostport/avatica, I
think we should make this release 2.4.0.
