gnulib's support for CVS/Git and 'make dist' is neat.
I have a question about 2 files though:
- 'm4/gnulib-comp.m4' is not mentioned in '.gitignore', so it keeps
showing up in 'git status', but it's documented as a built file, not
to be included in the project repository. It could be added in the
- 'm4/gnulib-comp.m4' is "meant to be stored in CVS", however it is
not included in tarballs on 'make dist'. Currently my 'bootstrap'
script just calls 'gnulib-tool --import' and rely on
'gnulib-comp.m4' to fetch to appropriate modules. People who
download a project tarball and want to refresh the autotools files
will want to run 'bootstrap', which will only import the 'dummy'
module in this case.
Is this done on purpose, or does this need to be fixed?
