Before tagging, ensure the version number has been incremented in the following places:
Here’s an example commit where all three files were updated at once: https://github.com/IQSS/dataverse/commit/813b66a6077e8f94026a8db5320cceffefc10e11
The source for user-facing documentation (including this very guide) is under https://github.com/IQSS/dataverse/tree/master/doc
Docs don’t write themselves. Please help out! Before a release is tagged documentation related to that release should be checked in to the release branch (i.e. 4.0.1), ultimately to be hosted under a version number at http://guides.dataverse.org
The release branch (i.e. 4.0.1) should be merged into “master” before tagging.
The tag will be the number of the milestone and release branch (i.e. 4.0.1).
