Steps to having a shiny new IU Pilot Server

  1. Checkout the master branch from iu-avalon/avalon.
  2. Add avalonmediasystem/avalon as upstream and pull changes.
  3. Push into new version branch (ex: iu-pilot-3.0.0)
  4. Cherry picked 20eb8afd (probably) and make sure this change is added.
  5. Resolve conflicts, commit and push to release branch on github.
  6. Push release branch -> master.
