There isn't much documentation apart from the scripts that create a
release for creating a MediaWiki release.
As a result, there were some failures that could have been avoided --
branching the extensions at the same time core was branched, for example.
To improve the process for any future releases, we need to document the
process. To that end, I've started
to begin to
collect ideas and, ultimately, provide a recipe for making a release
that anyone can follow.
Please help me improve future releases by adding to the page.
