GitHub Releases

Triagebot can be used to automatically create releases on GitHub when a tag is pushed, using the relevant section of the changelog as the release body. No artifacts are uploaded when doing this.


Any time you push a git tag, or update the contents of the changelog, triagebot will synchronize all tags with the releases. That is, any tag that doesn’t have a release will create a new release. Additionally, the text of all the releases will be synchronized with the text in the changelog.

Tags that don’t have entries in the changelog will not create a release.


To enable automatically creating GitHub Releases, add this to the triagebot.toml at the root of your repository:

format = "rustc"
project-name = "Rust"
changelog-path = ""
changelog-branch = "master"

The format defines which format the changelog file adheres to, and it’s used to properly extract the relevant section from it. You can add another format by changing triagebot’s src/changelogs/. The currently supported formats are:

  • rustc: follows the custom style of rustc’s

The project-name defines what the title of the release should be. The final title will be {project-name} {tag}.

The changelog-path and changelog-branch keys define where triagebot should look at when searching for the changelog.
