Zuul uses reno for release note management. When adding a noteworthy feature, fixing a noteworthy bug or introducing a behavior change that a user or operator should know about, it is a good idea to add a release note to the same patch.
reno has a command,
reno, that is expected to be run by developers
to create a new release note. The simplest thing to do is to install it locally
pip install --user reno
Adding a new release note¶
Adding a new release note is easy:
reno new releasenote-slug
releasenote-slug is a short identifier for the release note.
reno will then create a file in
releasenotes/notes that contains an
initial template with the available sections.
The file it creates is a yaml file. All of the sections except for
contain lists, which will be combined with the lists from similar sections in
other note files to create a bulleted list that will then be processed by
prelude section is a single block of text that will also be
combined with any other prelude sections into a single chunk.
