I'm currently rewriting HandyNotes_Trainers and HandyNotes_Vendors and I'm doing this on /trunk. Because there were some issues with current release versions I've branched the old version and made small changes on branches.
There is no problem in creating full releases by tagging the branches, but I'd like to know, if the wowace packager can create Alpha version automatically from branches as well (like it does from trunk)
I know that I can tag the revision and add Alpha keyword to create Alpha version manually, but that way I would pollute /tags directory with Alpha releases and it will also increase revision number for each Alpha release (which should be available for each of my commits)
No, the automated alpha versions will only ever be created from trunk.
Ok, thanks for your reply.
I was thinking about it from your perspective and it would create to many problems to solve just a minor issue (names of files, ui for users to distinguish between trunk versions and branch version, ui for developers and addon managers, ...)
Can you please update KB article about tagging as Alpha versions?
What is the proper tag name for Alpha version?
- "v1.1.7 Alpha"
