- You have some pick requests that qualify for a patch release and people have agreed it’s good to release a patch.
1. Check out the latest version from release branch
# Be on relevant release branch
# update the stable branch with tags
git pull origin <release-branch> --tags
# cherry pick relevant commits
git cherry-pick <commit>
# once done picking, push changes to the remote
2. Test the current changes
Before continuing further, follow the testing guide to ensure the release doesn't have any major issues.
# run a script to bump the version
# You most likely **don't** want this release marked as "latest"
./scripts/bump-oss-version.js --version x.y.z-rc.x --token circle-ci-token
