I'm looking at automating the ZitaFTP release process a bit more, and also uploading it to the aminet. Has anyone written a script/tool to help generate aminet readme's? Preferably a bash/python script, or something else that's cross platform.
Ideally, here's how it would work:
- There's a template with the basic info that doesn't change (e.g., name, brief description). Or, it could be stored in a JSON file (or similar)
- The script would update the version number by reading the current version number from the program (or the *.lha archive name, which has the form
- The script would extract the latest changes from "Release Notes.txt," pulling out the changes since the last upload
- Bonus: upload the archive and readme to aminet (e.g., using curl)
With small tweaks, the same script could be used to upload to os4depot as well. It has a similar upload process to aminet, but slightly different readme requirements.
