Post major release tasks
From Koha Wiki
Some things to be done after each major release when the new release team takes over:
- Add new version to the Version pull down in Bugzilla.
- Add new RM, RMaints and QA Team as CC to security bugs so they automatically get informed when a security bug is filed. Requires admin access to Bugzilla.
Bug Clean Up
After every release, it's time to do some housekeeping in Bugzilla. For the past few years the following procedure has been followed:
- Create saved searches with the criteria below.
- Check search results and adapt your criteria if necessary
- Create a backup by exporting search results as CSV files
- Important: Ask Bugzilla admin to turn off email before performing bulk changes!
- Perform bulk changes.
- Important: Ask Bugzilla admin to turn email back on!
