Thanks Bas, that was very helpful. I’ve added a HOWTORELEASE and created README.md
from GRIDS.md and README.DATUMGRID in this pull request:


I have prepared a release candidate with the above changes. It seems to be fine and I will upload
it soon and announce it here on the list once it is ready.

I’ve got that covered.

I figured as much, but it was worth noting for the record.

I have never used CPack before. Can you give a rough guide on how to produce the package?
I ran cmake in a dedicated build dir and then cpack. It produces an empty tar.gz archive. I must
have missed something.

CMake uses the package_source target to create archives, as a
convenience I added the dist target to have the build behave more like

The process comes down to:

# Create proj-datumgrid tarball & zipfile
mkdir build
cd build
cmake ..
make dist

# Check repo status for grid changes
git status

# Check tarball & zipfile content
tar tavf proj-datumgrid-1.7alpha1.tar.gz
unzip -l proj-datumgrid-1.7alpha1.zip

# Copy archives to elsewhere
cp proj-datumgrid-1.7alpha1.* <elsewhere>

# Cleanup
cd ..
rm -rf build
