Subject What purpose does build_aux serve in Qpid C++?
Date Tue, 20 May 2008 17:24:49 GMT
hi all,

Why do we need build_aux is Qpid cpp? This directory contains a number of
GPL files. And, this fact is pointed out in sources such as [1]. The same
behaviour can be achieved by applying the following patch and removing the
build_aux directory.
