[Ovmsdev] Firmware release handling

From the original announcement on this:

To try to avoid a repeat of the 3.1.007 issue with OTA updates, I’ve set things up as below:

edge: Bleeding edge developer, built automatically each night with 3.1.XXX-N-HHHHHH style versioning
eap: Early Access Program pre-releases, usually with 3.1.XXX style versioning
main: Stable releases that have completed testing in EAP, with 3.1.XXX style versioning.

Before moving things edge -> eap, I’ll have a checklist of regression tests to run (including ota update). Other functional problems should have been picked up by developer cars while in ‘edge’ release. I suggest to leave a particular build in ‘edge’ for a week, to make sure no problems reported to those early real-world testers, before moving to ‘main’.

I have an automated nightly build script that runs at 4pm UTC (midnight HKT). That pulls the latest masters for esp-idf and ovms firmware, then builds as appropriate. If there is something to build (something in git changed), it does it automatically and produces an email summary like this:

Subject: OVMS Nightly Firmware Build 3.1.008-13-g272697e

* b3bef78 TeslaRoadster: Digital Speedo implementation
* cfbd297 TeslaRoadster: Vehicle cooldown command and implementation
* ec4bc37 Add VehicleModeKey helper function

At the moment, that summary comes to me. Is there any use sending it to the ovmsdev mailing list?

With developer cars set to ‘edge’, and automatically updating each night, hopefully with this three stage process we can pickup on problems before they hit the main stable trunk.

Regards, Mark.

This is all from ‘master’ and unrelated to braches (which are experimental and usually hand-built).

Usually, unless we explicitly say ’to early access program’.

The v3.2.015 code was fixed and tagged on 2nd Sep, then release to EAP.

It went to MAIN on 8th Sep (after EAP testing).
