#17839 closed defect (fixed)

doc/HACKING/ doesn't emphasize updating Makefile and versions.wmi enough?

Based on the tor-talk thread where people were thinking that Tor 0.2.6.x was still the stable release, I went to investigate and found that website's Makefile and versions.wmi both said was the stable version.

I updated them, and then went to file a ticket about how the release documentation doesn't include that step.

But it does!

So now I am filing a ticket saying that the step wasn't followed. Maybe it can be made more prominent? Or maybe we can investigate what failed in the process, so we can avoid this particular failure mode next time?
