Maintainer Python Script

With all the releases of Gossip that I have been doing recently, I decided I wasn’t really happy with the current tools available to get translation updates and the whole process of getting bugs fixed and updating the NEWS file. Plus Tim had also mentioned that it was one of many things that take up so much time when releasing projects like GTK+. I can only imagine how long it must take Matthias each release.

So I started to write a tool to make life that little more easier. It is not finished, but it is a start. Some of the current features include:

  • Show updated translations
  • Show fixed bugs
  • Show a summary of bugs fixed and their description
  • Create a release note for sending out announcements

I have been using it with Gossip the last few releases and I have tested it with glib and gtk+ and it works OK – see what you think:
