Automates the process of releasing a new version of some software.
Easily write a script to release a new version, with variable steps.
Releasing software usually is a pain. There are several checks that the developer must make for each new version. The developer is prone to forget one of them or perform the checks out of the optimal order. As Murphy would have it, many buggy releases are created for this reason.
releaser is a little framework the developer can use to write a script to guide him through the new version release process, such that the checks are performed automatically. (Each software project will have a release script that differs a little bit from others.)
Many steps of a common release process have already been implemented, and you can easily write your own. (If you do write a step, please donate the code to the project.)
Activate your virtualenv, then:
easy_install -UZ releaser
