Hi,

I uploaded pre-release packages for 0.2.6:
https://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=83016&package_id=85308&release_id=671271

The changelog is here:
http://www.bakefile.org/browser/bakefile/trunk/NEWS

As usual, the plan is to release 0.2.6 in a week or so if there are no
non-trivial problems with these packages.

Regards,
Vaclav

non-trivial problems with these packages.
it would be very nice for wxCode devs (and other wxWidgets devs) to have
http://www.bakefile.org/ticket/236 in this release...

In fact currently lots of bakefiles.bkgen files for wx-based apps contains a
line like:

<add-flags>-I %WXWIN%/build/bakefiles/wxpresets</add-flags>

The WXWIN env var is very useful to avoid using absolute paths in files which
are placed in the SVN repo.

Also, many devs don't like / don't want to know about the build system and thus
using the environment variable is better than using <include
file="Bakefiles.bkgen.local" ignore_missing="1"/> and put the <adds-flags>-I
myabsolutepath</add-flags> in the Bakefiles.bkgen.local...

Also the patch makes bakefile_gen a little smarter about expression evaluation...

As always, no non-critical bugs will be fixed between pre1 and final
release and new features will *definitely* not be added. The point of
prereleases is to verify nothing is broken, any non-trivial additions
would negate that testing.

This doesn't make sense: developers *by definition* have to know about
the build system. And developers who don't want to bother with Bakefile
will use the generated makefiles -- that's the whole point of it!

Vaclav,

Just built the deb package... A couple things had to change to build an
error free Lenny deb, but they aren't show stoppers.

First, I am NOT a package maintainer and not especially conversant in the
debuild process. Nonetheless, the 'debian/rules' file need this change.
dh_python is deprecated, I think dh_pysupport is probably the correct
choice. Of course, documentation needs to change, but maybe this should
wait for Vadim?

Having said that, I will look into the Debian Maintainer process to see
about getting Bakefile into Squeeze, the next release.


Second, the output of *grep ^[#][\!] `find | grep [.]py\$`* highlights an
interesting issue. Here is the output:
./src/empy/em.py:*#!/usr/local/bin/python*
./src/bakefile_gen.py:#!/usr/bin/env python
./src/bakefile.py:#!/usr/bin/env python
./macosx/buildpkg.py:#!/usr/bin/env python
./build/python-makezip.py:#!/usr/bin/env python
./autoconf/merge-scripts.py:#!/usr/bin/env python

Guess what file isn't on my system?

I'll begin testing the pre-release on Monday.

Thanks again for this tool!

Either him or you, I'm of no use when it comes to Debian packaging I'm
afraid.

And guess which one doesn't have the executable bit set? empy/em.py is
only used as importable Python module by writer.py.

debuild threw a warning. I'm guessing the appropriate action is to remove
the hashbang line? I did this for my test....

If Vadim doesn't step in, I'll provide my changes. Do you want the patch in
Trac?

I didn't want to do any changes compared to upstream, but if it shuts
debuild up, yes.

It's preferred, yes.

Vaclav,

I wrote ticket 244 <http://www.bakefile.org/ticket/244> for the Debian build
and included 2 patches.

No regressions using gnu or xcode2. I can't easily test msvs2005prj this
week.

FYI, I use xcode2 changes that are NOT ready for trunk. So my testing of
xcode2 is not entirely pure... Still, I am happy with 0.2.6.
