Before Packaging

Unset Test Settings

  • debug = False on all scripts (search for debug = True - it will fix next issue in same process). Include dev_debug = False.
  • test_lang = False in

New locales/modules/images/themes/data in sofa.db etc

  • debian - update rules and for locales dirs
  • windows - update nsi file
  • mac - change contents of /home/g/projects/SOFA/SOFA Statistics
  • any code changes where there is translation - add to app.fil
  • new images associated with new css - setup.populate_extras_path() where it populates everything if not there already.
  • git add name_of_new_file_to_track
  • If new css file manually add to list of styles in setup.populate_css_path()

Update Readme/Change Files

  • Create changes file (e.g. /home/g/projects/SOFA/notes/changes_0.9.5.txt). Include bug fixes after an empty line. NB new version numbers in download links from SourceForge.
  • Also make release notes file (e.g. /home/g/projects/SOFA/notes/release_notes_0.9.5.txt).


(Obsolete) Default Database

  • Skip this section if using scripts for Windows/Deb pre-packaging. They automatically overwrite stale default db with stored clean copy.
  • Use SQLite Database browser to delete all tables from SOFA_Default_db except the default one (SOFA_Default_tbl). In /home/g/sofa/_internal/.
  • Run /home/g/projects/SOFA/storage/ to shrink the default database e.g. 169Kb from 6Mb
