#REDIRECT [[How to do a release]]
If you are uploading the first release of a project to Xiph.org, then first create a release directory in the svn repository. You can do this using remote svn commands (rather than checking out the entire Xiph.org release archive):
  <tt>svn mkdir http://svn.xiph.org/releases/PROJECTNAME</tt>
Then check that directory out locally:
  <tt>svn co http://svn.xiph.org/releases/PROJECTNAME PROJECTNAME-releases</tt>
== Add new release files ==
Add tarballs etc. to your local checkout of the release directory:
  <tt>cd PROJECTNAME-releases</tt>
  <tt>svn add PROJECTNAME-x.x.x.tar.gz</tt>
Then, generate MD5 and SHA1 checksums for these files:
  <tt>md5sum *.tar.gz > MD5SUMS</tt>
  <tt>sha1sum *.tar.gz > SHA1SUMS</tt>
Check that the only modifications to the checksums are for the new files:
  <tt>svn diff</tt>
If everything is ok (and the checksums for other files have not changed), commit:
  <tt>svn commit</tt>
== Mail appropriate lists ==
Mail your release notes to appropriate project lists. You may also want to send news to:
  <tt>Linux Weekly News &lt;lwn@lwn.net&gt;</tt>
  <tt>comp.os.linux.announce &lt;cola@stump.algebra.com&gt;</tt>
