Subject [jira] [Created] (QPID-4640) Deprecate autoconf/automake build system.
Date Mon, 11 Mar 2013 18:39:15 GMT
Alan Conway created QPID-4640:

             Summary: Deprecate autoconf/automake build system.
                 Key: QPID-4640
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/QPID-4640
             Project: Qpid
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Build Tools
    Affects Versions: 0.20
            Reporter: Alan Conway
            Assignee: Alan Conway

Deprecate the automake build system in favour of the cmake build system. The cmake system
has been in use for several years now, and is more portable (supports windows). Having two
redundant systems is a source of confusion and errors. 

- Update docs (INSTALL, README, release notes etc.) to use cmake
- The configure script will fail by default with a deprecation message.
- Users can still use automake by doing "configure --use-deprecated=yes"

We will keep both systems working for this release, and remove the automake system in a subsequent
release. This gives us at least one release cycle with both systems available so we can fix
any bugs/deficiencies found in the cmake system as users switch from automake.
