### After 3 or more people have gitian-built, repackage gitian-signed zips:
### After 3 or more people have gitian-built and their results match:
- Upload gitian zips to SourceForge
- Perform code-signing.
- Announce the release:
- Code-sign Windows -setup.exe (in a Windows virtual machine using signtool)
- Code-sign MacOSX .dmg
Note: only Gavin has the code-signing keys currently.
- Add the release to bitcoin.org: https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin.org/tree/master/_releases
- Create `SHA256SUMS.asc` for builds, and PGP-sign it. This is done manually.
Include all the files to be uploaded. The file has `sha256sum` format with a
simple header at the top:
```
Hash: SHA256
0060f7d38b98113ab912d4c184000291d7f026eaf77ca5830deec15059678f54 bitcoin-x.y.z-linux.tar.gz
...
```
- Upload zips and installers, as well as `SHA256SUMS.asc` from last step, to the bitcoin.org server
- Update bitcoin.org version
- Make a pull request to add a file named `YYYY-MM-DD-vX.Y.Z.md` with the release notes
to https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin.org/tree/master/_releases
([Example for 0.9.2.1](https://raw.githubusercontent.com/bitcoin/bitcoin.org/master/_releases/2014-06-19-v0.9.2.1.md)).
- After the pull request is merged, the website will automatically show the newest version, as well
as update the OS download links. Ping Saivann in case anything goes wrong
- Announce the release:
- Release sticky on bitcointalk: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=1.0
- Bitcoin-development mailing list
- Optionally reddit /r/Bitcoin, ...
- Update title of #bitcoin on Freenode IRC
