Releasing

Automating away your library release process because you find it boring and tedious is the worst thing you can do. People rely on your releases to be meaningful, have meaningful version numbers, and meaningful release notes. Yes, these take time. But your releases are when your users are reminded that you exist. At other times, your library is just quietly doing its thing. Releases are when your users take notice. They want to read your change log, look at the version number to see if they need to pay attention. You’re in the spotlight. This is your performance. Give your releases some love.
