  2. Place the files on the net (make it publicly available). If you don't have access to public web or ftp server you could upload these files into your home directory at SF shell server. Please do not use anonymous SourceForge ftp server.
  3. Write an e-mail to mailing list with subject New release: <modulename>-<releasename>. Example: New release: jtag-0.4

    • module name
    • release name
    • a properly formatted text for release notes
