At first, one must use the right terms, which are to be understood regarding our project's own conventions and Sourceforge's ones: in
OSDL is the package name,
0.3 is the version (made from a major version number,
0, and a minor version number,
3), which is also known to Sourceforge as a file release, and
17 designates the (sub)release number.
The result of new versions, releases and subreleases can be viewed in Sourceforge download area for OSDL.
Here are some steps in order to prepare relatively painlessly a new version of an OSDL's family member (please note that a few of these steps necessitate to be a registered OSDL member).
We now rely on the release method we described in Ceylan's developer guide. One just has to replace a mention to Ceylan by a mention to OSDL.
