I’m having some problems with making a new release. When I make a new release by pushing a tag, initially the tag message shows up as the release description, but when I edit the release to upload a binary file it disappears.
I do the following:
In local repo:
push next branch and associated annotated tag
choose Releases. The new tag shows up as a release.
Choose rel2.2.0-beta-2017-11-06. Release appears with tag message:
to master since this tag
I want to add a binary download, so I choose Edit Tag.
The page with Tag Title and Describe This Release edits appear, but they are empty.
So I fill in the title and description and hit Browse to upload a binary. I upload a EXE file, and it says:
Something went really wrong, and we can’t process that file.
Saving draft failed. Try again?
Chose Try another file, nothing happens.
Refresh page, title and description are empty.
I filled in the title and description again and retried a couple of times with the same results. I think I forgot to fill in the title and description and it uploaded the file and it worked. I then filled in the title and description again and was able to publish the release.
What’s going on? Can I upload the binary without choosing Edit Tag?
(Note: I’m blind, so there may be something I’m missing on the page, and the names of page items I mention may be the ALT text for them which may be slightly different from what appears on the screen. Also, no one has seen the screen shots before now!)
