#3814 closed defect (fixed)

Releasing creates 2 copies or the kernel and tools.

The release snapshot m1911 as found here:


has a kernel (rtems-5.0.0-m1911.tar.xz) in the top directory and another copy in the sources directory.

The top level copy is the head of the branch, in this case master while I suspect the copy in the sources directory is created by the RSB when collecting the source.

Which is correct for a release? I am not sure, the tagged version in the RSB or the release packaged version?

I tend to think the release packaged version is used and the RSB collected versions should not be collected. They are only useful when working from git.
