Testing and release management in the repository[edit]

All tests carried out here should be following the Functional tests instructions.

  • Run make messages and then do German translation
  • Test if gPodder works for normal and first-time use cases:
   # ... test if basic usage works with current data ...
   mv ~/gPodder ~/gPodder.saved
   # ... test gPodder (subscribing + downloading) ...
   rm -rf ~/gPodder
   mv ~/gPodder.saved ~/gPodder
  • Update src/gpodder/ with new version number, release date and release name
  • Update share/gpodder/credits.txt from the Git history
   git log gpodder-x.y.(z-1).. | git shortlog | grep -v '^[ ]' | sort -u | sed -e 's/\(.*\) ([^)]*):/\1/g'
  • Update translations and manpage:
   make messages
