Uploading binaries to ftp.gnome.org
First, similar concerns to source code releases apply here: See MaintainersCorner/Releasing.
We need to document what source code was used, and how to compile it. This will be implemented by adding a file called SOURCES in each directory that contains binary files. The SOURCES file describes how to generate those binaries. If you have independent binaries, at present, we recommend using separate directories.
SOURCES file example
Source: http://git.gnome.org/browse/tomboy/tag/?id=1.7.7 See these two pages for instructions on building this binary: https://live.gnome.org/Tomboy/ReleaseChecklist https://live.gnome.org/Tomboy/Building/Windows This binary was generated with Visual Studio 2008 on Windows 7, using gtk-sharp-sdk-2.12.7.
