Release Process


Permifrost uses semver as its version number scheme.


Ensure you have the latest master branch locally before continuing.

git fetch origin


Permifrost uses tags to create its artifacts. Pushing a new tag to the repository will publish it as docker images and a PyPI package.

  1. Ensure your installation is up to date following the Development workflow outlined above

  2. Execute the commands below:

    # create and checkout the `release-next` branch from `origin/master`
    git checkout -B release-next origin/master
    # view changelog (verify changes made match changes logged)
    changelog view
    # after the changelog has been validated, tag the release
    make release
      # If doing a patch release, run
      make type=patch release
    # ensure the tag once the tag has been created, check the version we just bumped to: e.g. `0.22.0` => `0.23.0`.
    git describe --tags --abbrev=0
    # push the tag upstream to trigger the release pipeline
    git push origin $(git describe --tags --abbrev=0)
    # push the release branch to merge the new version, then create a merge request
    git push origin release-next
  3. Create a merge request from release-next targeting master
  4. Make sure to check delete the source branch when the changes are merged
  5. When the publish pipeline succeeds, the release is publicly available on PyPI
