During the release cycle, a copy of <filename>CHECKSUM.SHA512</filename> and <filename>CHECKSUM.SHA256</filename> for each architecture are stored in the FreeBSD Release Engineering Team internal repository in addition to being included in the various announcement emails. Each <filename>MANIFEST</filename> containing the hashes of <filename>base.txz</filename>, <filename>kernel.txz</filename>, etc. are added to <package>misc/freebsd-release-manifests</package> in the Ports Collection, as well.
In preparation for the release build, several files need to be updated:
Update the <varname>BRANCH</varname> value to <literal>RELEASE</literal>
<filename>UPDATING</filename>
Add the anticipated announcement date
<filename>lib/csu/common/crtbrand.c</filename>
Replace <literal>__FreeBSD_version</literal> with the value in <filename>sys/sys/param.h</filename>
After building the final <literal>RELEASE</literal>, the <literal>releng/<replaceable>12.0</replaceable>/</literal> branch is tagged as <literal>release/<replaceable>12.0.0</replaceable>/</literal> using the revision from which the <literal>RELEASE</literal> was built. Similar to creating the <literal>stable/<replaceable>12</replaceable>/</literal> and <literal>releng/<replaceable>12.0</replaceable>/</literal> branches, this is done with <command>svn cp</command>. From the repository root:
<prompt>%</prompt> <userinput>svn cp ^/<literal>releng/<replaceable>12.0</replaceable>/</literal>@r<replaceable>306420</replaceable> <literal>release/<replaceable>12.0.0</replaceable>/</literal></userinput>
<prompt>%</prompt> <userinput>svn commit <literal>release/<replaceable>12.0.0</replaceable>/</literal></userinput>
