Subject Re: gbuild migration (Was: Re: Building module store error on macOS)
Date Wed, 04 Apr 2018 13:51:31 GMT
Thank you, I appreciate it.

The list of gbuild modules is in main/ The rest are using
dmake. The next one I expect to port is main/jurt, and that will be a
substantial patch.

Will our release process keep testing trunk until it's ready, then make a
branch of it to use for the release?

If necessary I can work on modules offline or in another branch, then
commit or merge them back when the release is over.
