Hey, everyone. We have some improvements to Release Notes for lifted packages we’d like to tell you about. We were originally asking lifters to come to Tidelift to manually approve any release notes we pulled from GitHub before publishing. The original intent was to see if there was a reason to give different or augmented release notes for subscribers. We realized, though, that pretty much all lifters wanted the opposite experience: to simply pass through release notes pulled from GitHub directly to subscribers. So from now on, that’s the default:
Auto-publishing release notes pulled from GitHub is enabled on all current and newly lifted packages, and you can disable it per-package if you choose. You’re always free to modify the Tidelift-only release notes any way you see fit.
As part of this, we want to approve each package’s unapproved release notes that we pulled from GitHub. About ⅔ of all release notes pulled from GitHub are not approved. We’ll do this on August 8th. If, for some reason, you don’t want your old release notes published, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the packages you don’t want published and we’ll skip those. As usual, post any questions in the comments below!
