Notes to myself on all the steps to make for a Ninja release.
Push new release branch:
1. Consider sending a heads-up to the ninja-build mailing list first
2. Make sure branches 'master' and 'release' are synced up locally
3. update src/ with new version (with ".git"), then
git commit -am 'mark this 1.5.0.git'
4. git checkout release; git merge master
5. fix version number in src/ (it will likely conflict in the above)
6. fix version in doc/manual.asciidoc (exists only on release branch)
7. commit, tag, push (don't forget to push --tags)
git commit -am v1.5.0; git push origin release
git tag v1.5.0; git push --tags
# Push the 1.5.0.git change on master too:
git checkout master; git push origin master
8. construct release notes from prior notes
