Date Thu, 04 Mar 2010 13:03:27 GMT


Olivier Mengué commented on AXIS2C-1459:

See the automake manual as a reference:

> -----------------------------------------
>                 Key: AXIS2C-1459
>                 URL:
>             Project: Axis2-C
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: build system (Unix/Linux)
>    Affects Versions: 1.6.0, Current (Nightly)
>            Reporter: Olivier Mengué
>            Priority: Minor
> The top contains the following lines:
> dist-hook:
> 	rm -rf `find $(distdir)/ -type d -name .svn`
> ...
> This makes the process of creating patches of the build system unnecessary harder, as
it requires to have a separate checkout elsewhere.
> I understand the need to avoid to have .svn directory in releases archives. But the problem
may be at a higher level: releases should not be made from an 'svn checkout' but instead from
an 'svn export' with controlled revision number (a release tag), to avoid making a package
using files which are missing from the repository.
> So please remove the 'rm .svn' line.
