Things to check

The following things should be checked to make sure they're up to date and correct:

  • All source files should have a license header
  • The following files should be using the correct version number:
  • AUTHORS should be complete and accurate.
  • README if anything was changed in the compiling process(e.g. new libraries) or if there was any interface changes.
  • ChangeLog should be double-checked for accuracy and any things that need adding should be added.
  • All new text strings should be dumped and added to Transifex. Translators should know there's more to translate and updated translations should be included.

The second thing is that a news post has to be submitted using wordpress.
