111 111 Tip: Because the build process is a lenghty one (currently around 2 hours), it is a good idea to use the [[screen linux command>>http://www.rackaid.com/resources/linux-screen-tutorial-and-how-to/]]. This is most helpful in case your Internet connection or electrical power drops. However, it is not in any way mandatory to use screen during the release.

115 +Tip: running the release script will first ask you for your GPG key passphrase. If you mistype or enter a wrong passphrase, the release will fail to perform. You can test your passphrase locally running the following command :
116 +
117 +{{code language="bash"}}echo "test" | gpg --no-use-agent -o /dev/null --local-user <KEYID> -as - && echo "Passphrase is correct"{{/code}}
118 +
119 +If for a reason or another you've made a mistake typing your passphrase in, you will need to delete (locally on the agent machine) the release branch and created tag before you can start over again.

116 116 In case the version you`ve just build was a ##Release Candidate##, there are 2 extra steps you need to perform, which are to **update the parent version and version properties** on the ##master## branch and to **update the continuous integration jobs** to build the new stable version that you have just created trough the release of a RC version.
