Here is a draft.

How to make a new RC of the OSVM:

  1. Tag specific commit with its UTC timestamp, e.g., 202205110711 for May 11, 2022 at 7:11
  2. Run all "Build for*" workflows manually for that tag
  3. Verify that a pre-release was created for that tag, containing all build artifacts

How to make a new release of the OSVM:

  1. Do a new RC (see above)
  2. Edit that GitHub pre-release to be an actual release
  3. Change the description to have some release notes on the changes

How to make use of OSVM-RC in squeak-app bundles:

  1. Maybe do a new RC (see above)
  2. In any branch's bundle.yml, set VM_RC_TAG in prepare-bundles job to the RC tag

How to make use of a new OSVM release in squeak-app bundles:

  1. Maybe make a new VM release (see above)
  2. Update the files in for the Squeak versions of your choice
  3. ⚠️ Watch out for minor differences between OSVM packaging and what vm-*.zip expects. For example, Linux has an extra indirection that needs to be removed. And those macOS .dmg packages have to be converted to .zip for squeak-app.
