I'm trying an experiment of keeping some weekly notes here of what I'm
working on. I do something similar at
$dayjob, where I've found it
helpful as a way of keeping track of ongoing work, as well as containing
helpful pointers when I need to dig up information on something that has
been paged out of my brain.
I've started looking into improving release automation in
uefi-rs. Ultimately I
think it might be nice to do this through a manually-invoked github
action, but for starters I'm adding an xtask command that wraps
cargo-release and then merges the release commit through a PR (since
main branch is protected from direct pushes).
I've already made a couple PRs to
cargo-release in service of making
it work better for uefi-rs:
I was very happy with how quick the review process was on those PRs, and they got released right away which is neat.
The tricky thing about writing code to do a release is of course testing it without accidentally pushing anything to crates.io or the github repo. I'm thinking maybe I can use cargo-http-registry and a scratch repo to make local testing easier.
Put up another small
fix(cli): Fix help text for --verbose.
