Plone release management utilities

Project description


Tools to make managing Plone core releases easier.


To install plone.releaser add it to your buildout:

recipe = zc.recipe.egg
eggs =  plone.releaser

To make it available in buildout.coredev, run buildout with releaser.cfg:

$ bin/buildout -c releaser.cfg


Check PyPi access to all Plone packages for a certain user:

$ bin/manage checkPypi timo

Check a package for updates:

$ bin/manage checkPackageForUpdates Products.CMFPlone

Report packages with changes:

$ bin/manage report --interactive


$ bin/manage pulls


$ bin/manage changelog


$ bin/manage launchpad

Check checkout:

$ bin/manage check-checkout

Append Jenkins build number to package version:

$ bin/append-jenkins-build-number-to-package-version

Set package version:

$ bin/set-package-version


1.8.2 (2020-06-26)

New features:

  • Support env var PLONE_RELEASER_MULTI_PACKAGES to signal doing multiple releases. We still change checkouts.cfg and versions.cfg in the relevant coredev branches then, but we do not offer to push them. [maurits] (#37)

Bug fixes:

  • Fixed detecting changes in packages that are missing from checkouts. [maurits] (#35)

1.8.1 (2020-03-08)

Bug fixes:

  • Fixed adding a package to checkouts.cfg. [maurits] (#30)
  • Ask before pushing an updated version when running ‘report’. [maurits] (#32)

1.8.0 (2019-11-25)

New features:

  • Handle coredev branch 6.0 when releasing packages. [maurits] (#27)

Bug fixes:

  • Fixed adding some package versions twice when releasing. [maurits] (#24)

1.7.3 (2019-08-29)

Bug fixes:

  • Fixed Python 3 compatibility. [maurits] (#25)

1.7.2 (2019-02-13)

No significant changes.

1.7.1 (2018-12-14)

Bug fixes:

  • Python 3 compatibility fix for xmlrpclib/xmlrpc import differences. [esteele] (#21)
  • Fix pypi URL. [gforcada] (#23)

1.7.0 (2018-10-01)

New features:

  • Require zestreleaser.towncrier. And start using towncrier for our own CHANGES.rst. [maurits] (#17)

1.7.0 (unreleased)

New features:

  • New zest.releaser hook: update other buildout.coredev branches as well. This automates the manual bookeeping that one has to do whenever releasing packages: i.e. to check if the package just released is also checked out and used in other buildout.coredev branches. [gforcada]
  • Ensure that selected packages are always kept on checkouts.cfg. [gforcada]

1.5.5 (2017-10-17)

Bug fixes:

  • Skip over broken version definitions when building the unified changelog. [esteele]

1.5.4 (2016-11-01)

Bug fixes:

  • Use print as a function. [gforcada]

1.5.3 (2016-06-27)

Bug fixes:

  • Change pypi-url from http to https. [fgrcon]

1.5.2 (2016-06-12)

New features:

  • Ask before pushing to coredev, after updating the checkouts and versions. [maurits]

Bug fixes:

  • Fix new versions if they had dev/post release suffix. [gforcada]

1.5.1 (2016-04-28)

New features:

  • Changed new headings to ‘Breaking changes’, ‘New features’, ‘Bug fixes’. Old headers are still accepted, but in the postrelease we generate the new ones. In the unified changelog, we combine the old and new names. See [maurits]

Bug fixes:

  • When compiling changelog, treat Incompatibilities header as special too. [maurits]

1.5.0 (2016-02-27)


1.4 (2016-02-11)


  • Removed our ‘show changelog’ entry point. Required zest.releaser 6.6.0 that has this itself. [maurits]
  • Show New: and Fixes: in unified changelog. [maurits]
  • Require New: or Fixes: to be present in the changelog during prerelease. [maurits]
  • Simplified showing last changelog entries. Requires zest.releaser 6.0 or higher. [maurits]
  • Set new changelog format during postrelease. Adapt check in prerelease that warns when the original changelog text has not been changed since the previous release. Issue [maurits]


1.3 (2015-09-27)

  • Fail nicely if a Plone versions.cfg can’t be located [esteele]
  • When showing the changelog, accept as version. So loose version numbers instead of strict version numbers with only one or two dots. [maurits]
  • Run git pull on buildout.coredev to make sure it is up-to-date. [timo]
  • Refactor checkPackageForUpdates to be more flexible. Made it a class on its own module. [gforcada]
  • Create a jenkins report based on checkPackageForUpdates. [gforcada]

1.2 (2015-03-21)

  • Rename esteele.manager to plone.releaser. [timo]

  • add command to set the package version in a versions config file [jfroche]
  • return the new version number when appending jenkins build number to the versions of a package [jfroche]

1.0 (2014-04-23)

  • Initial release [esteele]
