* Commit changes ... it never works the first time
* "Tag" the release
svn cp svn:// svn://
svn mv svn:// svn://
First make sure you git-commit-ed the ChangeLog all the version release related changes, then:
(Create an annotated tag, you can skip -a if you used -m)
git push origin <RELEASE_VERSION>
(You are advised to play with it on the sandrox.git if you feel unconfortable)
* Move /opt/ftp/pub/videolan/testing/vlc-X.X.X to /opt/ftp/pub/videolan/vlc/X.X.X
- At first block access to this directory by http or ftp. Only authorize rsync.
