- [ ] Review packageMetaData packageName= and product name= entries in to ensure consistency with regards to use of incubation, speficially packages containing incubating components must have:
- [ ] `-incubation` at the end of the product name (e.g. `<product name="eclipse-cpp-2020-03-RC1-incubation" />`)
- [ ] ` (includes Incubating components)` at the end of the packageMetaData packageName matching whitespace and letter case (e.g. `packageName="Eclipse IDE for C/C++ Developers (includes Incubating components)"`)
-- [ ] Update the build qualifiers to ensure that packages are all updated. Run [setGitDate]( script to do that.
- [ ] Update name of the release in strings with a "smart" global find&replace. See this [gerrit]( for an example. In particular, check:
- [ ] `packages/*/` for `product name=` line
- [ ] Variables in parent pom `releng/org.eclipse.epp.config/parent/pom.xml`
- [ ] On M1, whole version string is updated, including platform version (e.g. `4.14` -> `4.15`); this is a large change including pom.xml, feature.xml, MANIFEST.MF,, and epp.product
- [ ] When the year changes, e.g. between 2019-12 and 2020-03 releases, an update of the copyright year is required with a very smart search&replace.
+- [ ] Update the build qualifiers to ensure that packages are all updated. Run [setGitDate]( script. This script will make a local commit.
- [ ] Wait for announcement that the staging repo is ready on [cross-project-issues-dev]( An [example announcement](
- [ ] Run a [CI build]( that includes the above changes
- [ ] Sanity check the build for the following:
