Pack wam_common_lisp -- CONTRIBUTING.md

Dislike having tons of forks that are several commits behind the main git repo?

(Why feel obligated to maintain a git fork just to contribute ?)

Please ask to be added to logicmoo !

Releasing Common Lisp-Prolog

There're no hard rules about when to release wam_common_lisp. Release bug fixes frequently, features not so frequently and breaking API changes rarely.


Run tests, check that all tests succeed locally.

?- run_tests(wam_common_lisp).

Increment the version, modify pack.pl.

  • Increment the third number if the release has bug fixes and/or very minor features, only (eg. change 0.0.1 to 0.0.2).
  • Increment the second number if the release contains major features or breaking API changes (eg. change 0.0.1 to 0.2.0). Remove the line with "Your contribution here.", since there will be no more contributions to this release.

    Remove the "Stable Release" section in README that warns users that they are reading the documentation for an unreleased version.

    Commit your changes.

    git add README.md CHANGELOG.md pack.pl
    git commit -m "Preparing for release, 0.0.2."
    git push origin master


    $ @TODO
