For folks that maintain their own patches to civicrm-core stored via git, how do you deploy? For many years, I've been sourcing distmaker/dists/common.sh and running things manually (dm_generate_vendor, etc). I'm wondering if there's a better way.

I think I'm looking or the opposite of gitify. I've looked at releaser which seems like the right idea, but I'm scared off by the comments ("If you're not using it to manage the official releases on civicrm.org, then... eh... good luck...").

Is there anything simple that I'm missing?

Civi generate tarballs of master or last/future release branch nightly. You could try downloading them from here



  • Thanks for the tip. The problem is that I maintain a handful of patches in our git repo, so I want to build a tar ball specifically from our git repo.
