Re: CF CLI v6.14.1 Released Today

Matthew Sykes <matthew.sykes@...>

Instead of using a pivotal tap, why don't we create a cloudfoundry tap for
the open source bits? Shannon raised this as an issue[1] on the CLI repo
and I think it makes a lot of sense.

Not only will it put the tools in the proper namespace, it's easy to
provide push access for the appropriate development teams.

Last time I requested CF CLI release to be bumped on homebrew tap, it got

they expect CF CLI team to provide PR. Maybe creation of that PR can be
automated, so next time we read release notes community will be able to
find CF CLI release also there.

Hi Stevo,

Thanks for the feedback!

The release process tends to take about 4 hours and we started the
release process in the afternoon so we didn’t get to updating homebrew on
the same day.

It’s the first thing the team will do tomorrow morning.

I didn’t want to postpone sending the announcement.

I’m not sure what is involved in preparing the homebrew tap PR and who
can accept it when. I can ask around, maybe we can ping someone when we
submit the PR and get it fast-tracked.

We are also incrementally working on speeding up our release process and
automating more steps.

This time for example you may have noticed that the release notes below
and the changelog on GitHub are the same, and in MarkDown format.

They used to be produced separately, one in a Google Doc based on the
stories in Tracker and the other from the commit log.

On the other hand, we introduced a new manual step of digitally signing
the Mac OS X package. We will automate this when we have a solution to
how/where to store the developer’s certificate used for signing in a secure

Thanks for the release and fixes!

One improvement idea - please consider making it part of the release
process to provide pull request for

Maybe it's already part of the process but delay between announcement and
cf cli available on homebrew is longer than a day. IMO ideally pull request
is at least created if not also merged before announcement of release is

Kind regards,

Stevo Slavic.
