Before I go to bed, I would like to know what you mean with you commit
29bd6abd1 (Build: dist fix)
TRANSLATORS: would stop stop screwing up like this? :/
As far as I remember, the extending manual has never been compiled since the
docs have been revamped, and there is just one translated node in
"programming interface" (Using Scheme code instead of tweak) that I have not
checked for long.
Put a file into: Documentation/fr/extending/
This was the first time a file had been put into that directory (I'm
sure you had to create the directory, but git doesn't track
directories). When you did this, you:
- did not create a GNUmakefile.
- did not add that directory to the SUBDIRS of the GNUmakefile of the
As a result, the file was not included in the "make dist" targets,
which caused the dist-check to fail, which meant that I had to spend
another 30 minutes recompiling all the binaries before I could release
I was a bit inaccurate in that commit message -- I should have blamed
whoever merged the lilypond/translation branch, not necessarily the
translator. I don't expect translators to know (or care) about the
odd aspects of our build system, but I *do* expect the translator to
know about this (at least, after I've yelled at him a few times).
Whenever a merge from lilypond/translation adds a new file to master,
be careful. If it's adding another .itely file to a directory that
already has some, then there's no problem. If it adds a .itely (or
.itexi) to a directory that *doesn't* have them, then you **must**
play around with GNUmakefiles.
OK; many thanks for this clear explanation.
I'm sorry to have disturbed the build system. I was sure that since this
notation's included filed had been moved to another manual in English, I
just had to follow this re-affectation, not mention the container
(directory) in the mother makefile and leave it as is until I begin to
work on this manual.
Next time, I'll park such a file anywhere else on the disk...
Cheers, and good night,
