Workflow for creating a release
Based on the instruction from Learn with Daniel

  1. Update readme.txt with the new version number (also update the Changelog section)
  2. Update synchronizing-civicrm-data-to-custom-posts.php with the new version number
  3. Create a new version at Github.
  4. To publish the release at WordPress Plugin directory follow the following steps:
    1. Create a temp directory: mkdir synchronizing-civicrm-data-to-custom-posts-tmp
    2. Go into this directory: cd synchronizing-civicrm-data-to-custom-posts-tmp
    3. Do an SVN checkout into SVN directory: svn checkout --depth immediates svn
    4. Clone the Github repository into Github directory: git clone github
    5. Go into the Github directory: cd github
    6. Checkout the created release (in our example 1.0.0): git checkout 1.0.0
    7. Go into the svn directory: cd ../svn
    8. Copy the files from github to SVN: rsync -rc --exclude-from="../github/.distignore" "../github/" trunk/ --delete --delete-excluded
    9. Add the files to SVN: svn add . --force
    10. Tag the release in SVN (in our example 1.0.0): svn cp "trunk" "tags/1.0.0"
    11. Now submit to the WordPress SVN with a message: svn ci -m 'Adding 1.0.0'
