Thread-topic: Re: Fwd: Help wanted in getting the Jakarta EE 9 tutorial over the finish line
Could you kindly work with Ivar to ensure the release happens? If you are a committer already, perhaps you could simply do the steps Ivar has outlined?

Thanks Ivar, that should be a start for anyone wanting to work towards releasing this. If we don't get any volunteers I could give it a shot, but I still have a little over 30 other projects on my plate right now to look at first.
The tutorial is released to its own GitHub Pages (gh-pages) branch. So the performing the actual release is pretty straightforward. When you have done the necessary updates for a version (e.g. 9.1), go ahead and tag it and run the Maven build with the publish-site profile.
Formally, maybe a release record should be created for it under the Platform Project (since that is where the repo is linked today), but it can also be considered as documentation for a release (which it is), and be updated freely. So I don't think all that formality is needed here.
Arjan, can you give us a sense of what needs to be done — is it just the release? If so, what does that require?
That's exactly my question too tbh. It's unclear what a release means exactly or how to do it. Part of the challenge is finding out what needs to be done, why the current version can't be released, and how the release process works.
All I know is that the issue has been hanging around for like forever, and nobody seems to know how to get the release done and/or has been able to. Hence why the help is needed so badly.
