Doing A ReleaseΒΆ

To run a PyNaCl release follow these steps:

  • Update the version number in src/nacl/

  • Update README.rst changelog section with the date of the release.

  • Send a pull request with these items and wait for it to be merged.

  • Run python release {version}

Once the release script completes you can verify that the sdist and wheels are present on PyPI and then send a new PR to bump the version to the next major version (e.g. 1.2.0.dev1).
