How to nominate issues

  • Bugs nomination (Anybody) : add 802patch1-candidate into Status Whiteboard (SW) field in BugZilla (Potential candidates [query 6])
  • Coordination (Coordinator) : chooses and approves candidates to be integrated into the next patch (change SW to 802patch1-candidate [query 2])

How to proceed with patch (Developers)

  1. wait until patch candidate is VERIFIED in trunk (if doesn't happen for long time please notify your QE or Coordinator)
  2. Issues integration:
    • you can use hg graft or hg transplant to cherry-pick a bug fix from default branch into release801 branch in repository releases, details: HgHowTos#Working_with_release_branches
    • Increasing spec. version numbers:
      • increase the third version number by 1 (X.Y.Z -> X.Y.Z+1) of all patched modules (DO NOT for org.netbeans.modules.reglib, org.netbeans.modules.updatecenters)
      • add following text into Long Description : For the list of included fixed bugs please check http://wiki.netbeans.org/NetBeans8.0.2PatchesInfo.
    • change SW of appropriate issue from 802patch1-candidate to 802patch1-fixed and set Target Milestone accordingly (e.g. "8.0.2")

How to verify and test (QE)

  1. Pre-integration testing: verify fixes of issues with SW 802patch1-candidate in trunk (change status to VERIFIED [query 4])
  2. Issues verification:
    • verify fixes in the build from releases/release801 branch
    • change SW for appropriate issue from 802patch1-fixed [query 3] to 802patch1-verified [query 5]
  3. Regression testing
  4. Download/Installation testing: test all scenarios covering to installation/patching already released bits+patches


How to release patch (Coordinator, BE)

  1. Update NetBeans8.0.2PatchesInfo page (Coordinator): provide list of fixed issues and list of patched plugins & related version numbers
