To make a release of Weston and/or Wayland, follow these steps.
To make a release of Wayland, follow these steps.
0. Verify the test suites and codebase checks pass. All of the
tests should either pass or skip.
$ make check
1. For Weston, verify that the wayland and wayland-protocols version
dependencies are correct, and that wayland-protocols has had a
release with any needed protocol updates.
2. Update the first stanza of configure.ac to the intended versions
for Weston and libweston.
For Weston's x.y.0 releases, if libweston_major_version is greater than
weston_major_version, bump the Weston version numbers (major, minor,
micro) to match the libweston version numbers (major, minor, patch).
Additionally for all Weston releases, if libweston's
major.minor.patch version is less than Weston's major.minor.micro
version, bump libweston version numbers to match the Weston
version numbers.
Weston releases are made with the Weston version number, not with the
libweston version number.

3. For Weston releases, install Xwayland, either from your distro or
manually (see http://wayland.freedesktop.org/building.html). If
you install it to a location other than /usr/bin/Xwayland, specify
this in the following env var:
XWAYLAND=$(which Xwayland) # Or specify your own path
export DISTCHECK_CONFIGURE_FLAGS="--with-xserver-path=$XWAYLAND"
If you're using a locally installed libinput or other dependency
libraries, you'll likely need to set a few other environment
variables:
export WLD="<path-to-your-local-installation>"
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$WLD/lib
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=$WLD/lib/pkgconfig:$WLD/share/pkgconfig/
4. Run the release.sh script to generate the tarballs, sign and
upload them, and generate a release announcement template.

5. Compose the release announcements. The script will generate
*.x.y.z.announce files with a list of changes and tags, one for
wayland, one for weston. Prepend these with a human-readable
listing of the most notable changes. For x.y.0 releases, indicate
the schedule for the x.y+1.0 release.
