Yesterday a minor release of the book was pushed to production. This was the first production build of the book from the Maven book’s new Github repository. We build the book from the production branch of the Git repository stored here: http://github.com/sonatype/maven-guide.
To build the book, we run the release:prepare goal and then I merge the release tag into the production branch. Once the production branch has been updated, our Hudson instance will then build and push the updated version of the book to http://www.sonatype.com/books/maven-book/reference/. We use Continuous Integration to constantly build a staging version of thes book from the master branch which is published here: http://www.sonatype.com/books/maven-book-stage/reference/.
