The Release Engineering - Autorelease project is targeted at building the artifacts that are used in the release candidates and final full release.
To clone all the autorelease repository including it’s
run the clone command with the ‘’’–recursive’’’ parameter.
git clone --recursive https://git.opendaylight.org/gerrit/releng/autorelease
If you forgot to add the –recursive parameter to your git clone you can pull
submodules after with the following commands.
git submodule init git submodule update
Creating Autorelease - Release and RC build¶
An autorelease release build comes from the autorelease-release-<branch> job which can be found on the autorelease tab in the releng master:
For example to create a Boron release candidate build launch a build from the autorelease-release-boron job by clicking the ‘’’Build with Parameters’’’ button on the left hand menu:
The only field that needs to be filled in is the ‘’’RELEASE_TAG’’’, leave all other fields to their default setting. Set this to Boron, Boron-RC0, Boron-RC1, etc… depending on the build you’d like to create.
Adding Autorelease staging repository to settings.xml¶
If you are building or testing this release in such a way that requires pulling
some of the artifacts from the Nexus repository you may need to modify your
settings.xml to include the staging repository URL as this URL is not part
of OpenDaylight Nexus’ public or snapshot groups.
If you’ve already cloned the recommended settings.xml for building ODL you will
need to add an additional profile and activate it by adding these sections to
(please adjust accordingly).
This is an example and you need to “Add” these example sections to your
settings.xmldo not delete your existing sections.
The URLs in the
\<pluginRepository\>sections will also need to be updated with the staging repository you want to test.
