+How to do a SPICE protocol release
+Some notes to prepare a release, not really strict but better to have in order
+to avoid forgetting something.
+* Check `meson.build` and `spice-protocol.spec` for release number
+* Update `CHANGELOG.md` with list of changes done since last release
+* Send a merge request with such changes, handle the review
+* Build distribution file with `meson dist`
+* Try to build an RPM package from `meson dist` output
+* `git push` for the above MR
+* Create a git tag (like `git tag -a v0.14.3 -m 'Release v0.14.3'`)
+* `git push` for the version tag created (for instance you can use
+  `git push origin v0.14.3` or `git push --tags`)
+* Sign generated tarball (to create a detached signature run
+  `gpg2 -sb spice-protocol-RELEASE.tar.xz`)
+* On Gitlab update tags (https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/spice/spice-protocol/-/tags)
+  * Add ChangeLog information
+  * Upload tarball and relative signature
+* Upload tarball and relative signature and sha256sum to
+  https://www.spice-space.org/download/releases/ (sftp to
+  `spice-uploader at spice-web.osci.io:/var/www/www.spice-space.org/download/releases/`)
+* Update file `download.rst` in
+  https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/spice/spice-space-pages
+* Send an email to spice-devel mailing list
