GRAM Releases package creation

The following process is to be followed to create a GRAM release package:

  1. Determine the release number (example 2.0)
  2. Repository should be tagged with the release number by typing:
       $ git tag -a v2.0 -m 'v2.0'
    
  3. From the top level gram directory type:
       $ git show v2.0 > src/GRAMVERSION
    
  4. Then to make new deb files: Note: create_gram_packages.py really seems to want the gram_root to be right under the package builder's home directory - i.e. /home/sdabideen/gram is the git clone. And we are compatible with gcf-2.4.1. Not sure about later gcf releases.
       $ cd pkg
       $ python create_gram_packages.py --version="3.2" --output_directory=/home/sdabideen --gram_root=/home/sdabideen --gcf_root=/home/sdabideen/gcf-2.4.1 
    
  5. For update deb files:
       $ python create_gram_packages.py --is_update=True --version="2.3" --output_directory=/home/sdabideen --gram_root=/home/sdabideen --gcf_root=/home/sdabideen/gcf-2.4.1
    
  6. To check .deb file contents:
       $ mkdir ~/temp
       $ dpkg -x somepackage.deb ~/temp/
    

These are the available options for the create_gram_packages.py script:

     Usage: create_gram_packages.py [options]

     Options:
       -h, --help            show this help message and exit
       --version=VERSION     Version number for gram deb release
       --output_directory=OUTPUT_DIRECTORY
                        Output directory for deb files
       --gcf_root=GCF_ROOT   Location of local GCF root
       --is_update=IS_UPDATE
                        Use this option to create an update package rather
                        than the full package
       --gram_root=GRAM_ROOT
                        Root of the GRAM source tree
