Alas, I have very little available time. That is one of the reasons
why I am such a terrible libtool maintainer. :-(
Not in the least, you've caught a zillion little things that would've
slipped through the cracks were you not here! :-)
I wanted to help (myself mainly) avoid the temptation to commit
`cleanups' to the branch that 2.0 will be released from. Having a
branch for 2.0 now means I can commit cleanups to HEAD (rather than
waiting and then forgetting them) and put only fixes on the release
Hmmm ... the true reason is revealed! :-)
If it is so easy for you to do, then please merge across the updates I
No probs. Done.
In the hope of persuading you that the short term pain of learning a
new SCM tool is worth the gain in productivity when you have climbed
the learning curve, this is how I did the merge (and synch with CVS on
HEAD and branch-2-0, along with commit and patch notification posts to
$ cd ~/devel/libtool--devo--1.0
CVS revision 1.1668 committed as patch-232
$ cd ~/devel/libtool--release--2.0
$ tla replay libtool--devo--1.0--patch-232
$ tlaapply -vgcr -p 's,XSED,Xsed, and support VERBOSE=debug'
$ cd -
CVS revision 1.1669 committed as patch-233
$ cd -
$ tla replay libtool--devo--1.0--patch-233
$ tlaapply -vgcr -p 'update notes regarding VERBOSE testing'
$ cd -
1.1669 is latest revision
Took me longer to write this reply than it did to do the merges :-)
Arch also knows that these changesets are now in both trees, so when I
star-merge branch-2-0 back onto HEAD, it will automatically skip them.
Provided that libtool starts working for MinGW and Solaris (MinGW is
much improved now), I would like to start using development libtool
for the development version of GraphicsMagick in order to gain more
real-world experience with it and flush out any remaining bugs which
keep me from using it for production use.
Excellent. Thanks. It should be easier now we have a tarball at
alpha.gnu.org to download and test too.
