Post Release

Call for translators email

When translations call is made, an email based on the template below should be sent out to encourage translators to get there work submitted.:

Hi All (and especially translators)

As of today please note that we are entering string freeze for the run up
to the next release. If you are committing bug fixes please avoid changing
any strings. Translation .ts files have been updated in SVN so please
update your local svn checkouts. The period for translations will close
MMMM-DD-YYYY (i.e. about one week from now) and then we will be branching
for release. Any translations submitted to us after that time will only be
included in the next release, so please submit what you have by then even
if it is not complete.

As always you can track the release plans via the checklist at:

If you have any questions about the translation process, please see the
following page which includes instructions on how to generate a .ts file
for a new locale.

Many thanks to all the translators out there for the great work you do!

 P.S.: The list of Translation Progress is here

Branching and Tagging Details

Branch the release using syntax below (update this with the actual commands you used to branch).:

git branch release-2_0
git push origin release-2_0

Tag the release using a signed tag:

git tag -s final-2_0_0 -m "Version 2.0.0"
git push origin final-2.0.0

Sistema de seguiment de correcció d’errors

All bugs that are intended to have been fixed in this release should have been marked as closed. All other bugs on the release branch should be marked for a future release. To do this:

  • create a new milestone and version e.g. we are releasing 2.0.0 now so create a new milestone in redmine for 2.0.0. Create the milestone here:

  • Now you need to update each open bug on the branch and reset its milestone for the next release in the future. This can be done easily doing a batch update in redmine.

Create the source tarball

Això s’aconsegueix millor executant aquest petit script:

cd ~/QGIS
git archive --format=tar --prefix=qgis-2.0.0/ final-2_0_0 | \
bzip2 > /var/www/downloads/qgis-2.0.0.tar.bz2
md5sum /var/www/downloads/qgis-2.0.0.tar.bz2 > \

Pro-forma call for packaging announcement


Hi All

Dear QGIS devs & packagers

--- Note to casual readers ---

Please do not pre-announce this release - give the packagers and release
team a chance to do their thing so that people hearing about the release
have a fair chance of finding a package, reading all our press material

--- End note ---

I have branched QGIS 2.0.0 for release. The branch can be checked out like
this (as a tracking branch)

git clone git://github.com/qgis/QGIS.git
git branch --track release-2_0 origin/release-2_0
git checkout release-2_0

Or (to check out the tag made immediately before branching)

git fetch
git checkout final-2.0.0

Source tarballs can be obtained from here:


Some notes:

- Please do not commit anything to the release branch except packaging
  related tweaks.
- If you make a package please be so kind as to update the download wiki
  page at http://www.qgis.org/wiki/Download with the details of your
- If you are able to make packages for unlisted platforms / distros please
  discuss your plans on this thread so that we can avoid duplication of
- I would like to make the release announcement next week, so it will be
  great to have as many packages as possible ready by then.
- GIT master is open again for general commits - please seek guidance from
  Marco Hugentobler (PSC Code Manager) if you are planning any major code
- Please accompany any updates to core with unit tests!

Many thanks to all the developers, testers, bug fixers, bug reporters,
document writers, translators and users that help to make QGIS a reality!

Lastly can I call on the release team (or any interested people) to help
to put together visual changelog (link below), press announcements etc.
ready for the release date? I will send you an email when the packages are
ready and you can start broadcasting announcements.

Visual Changelog Wiki Page: http://changelog.linfiniti.com/version/1/
(this is the site for drafting the release, the final release content will
be on the official QGIS web site).
