Notes for NuTools release managers

Changing one package

  • If you only need a new version of a single package, such as nugen, then simply checkout that package, edit, tag and build.
  • If you want a complete nulite distribution with the new package, then you would also checkout nutools.
    • Edit the package version and the nudist version in nutools/bundle/CMakeLists.txt.
    • The nudist version must be the same as the nutools version, but with an alphabet character added to the end.
      • For instance, v3_01_03 would become v3_01_03a, v3_01_03b would become v3_01_03c, etc.
    • Build nutools and use the generated nutools/bundle/nu* files. (See below for more information.)

The nu suite consists of nutools, nuevdb, nug4, nugen, nurandom, and nusimdata.
