- Have gpg-agent installed, configured and running. One way to be sure to check if your gpg agent is running correctly is to encrypt and decrypt a file, using the
gpgtool, don't forget to pass the
--use-agentoption, you should be prompted with a dialog (depending on your OS asking for your pass phrase). Now try to decrypt again, you hsould not be asked again for your pass phrase : your agent is working.
Once the code is ready to be released, create a branch that indicates the version, e.g.
0.5.0-release and send a heads-up (or vote) email to the mailing list asking to test the bits before we do release.
