Release facilities to ease the management of buildout based projects.

Project Description


Release facilities to ease the management of buildout based projects.

Standing on the shoulder of giants

This distribution intends to be as small as possible by integrating a few custom release choices done by the der Freitag development team.

For that it heavily relies on a couple of well known distributions:

What’s in?

A few zest.releaser plugins that:

  • check that the git repository is updated update_git_branch
  • update development branches after a release update_develop_branches
  • check translation files are updated check_translations

Additions to plone.releaser:

  • ability to release a distribution within the parent (buildout) project
    • check to ensure the correct branch on the parent project is used check_zope_branch
    • check that the distribution about to release exists check_folders
    • update versions.cfg with the new released version update_versions_cfg
  • gather the changes on distributions (more than only collect_changelog)
  • push cfg files publish_cfg_files
  • check which distributions need a release
  • update batou version pins (components/plone/versions/versions.cfg

  • Minor cleanup, 1.0 release was half broken. [gforcada]

1.0 (2015-11-24)

  • Only show the meaningful commits. [gforcada]
  • Remove develop branch support. This massively simplifies all the code. [gforcada]
  • Allow to release only some packages. See -f option on full-release command. [gforcada]
  • Push cfg files when doing a full release. [gforcada]
  • Test nearly everything. [gforcada]
  • Fix coverage and speed up travis. [gforcada]
  • Add more utility functions. [gforcada]
  • Add debug option to all commands, use python logging module to log information at various levels. [gforcada]
  • Avoid cloning repositories (speed ups everything). [gforcada]

0.7.1 (2015-11-16)

  • Clone a pushable repository. [gforcada]
  • Update the local branches after release. [gforcada]
  • Filter distributions to release. [gforcada]

0.7 (2015-11-16)

  • Lots of minor fixes here and there, too small and too many of them to list here. [gforcada]

0.6.3 (2015-11-13)

  • Adapt git_repo context manager from plone.releaser. [gforcada]
  • Adjust verbosity. [gforcada]

0.6.2 (2015-11-13)

  • More verbose and more string formatting fixes. [gforcada]
  • Check that a distribution has a source defined on buildout before trying to clone it. [gforcada]

0.6.1 (2015-11-13)

  • Fix two strings that were not formatted. [gforcada]

0.4 (2015-11-13)

  • Add gather changelog command. [gforcada]

0.3 (2015-11-13)

  • Cleanups and code reorganization. [gforcada]
  • Add full-release command. [gforcada]

0.2 (2015-11-11)

  • 0.1 was never released, due to not being registered on PyPI. [gforcada]

0.1 (2015-11-11)

  • add zest.releaser plugins:

    • vcs_updated: checkouts master and develop branches, rebases the former on top of the later (master catches up with develop) and leaves the checked out branch as master, ready to be released
    • i18n: runs bin/i18ndude find-untranslated and reports back if there are any strings not marked for translation
    • update_branches: the oposite from vcs_updated, rebased develop branch on top of master (which was used to make the release)


  • emulate plone.releaser and create a freitag_manage command with:

    • publish_cfg_files: send two specific files to a specific server
    • release: releases a distribution (with zest.releaser)


  • initial release [gforcada]
