Hi Mike,

The philosophy is that unpacked source is never clobbered.

To do what you want, you would be better to have your kernel source code outside ltib (under git control etc).

To do this, run ./ltib -m config and under "choose your kernel", select "Local Linux directory build", you can then point ltib to use your SCM control kernel tree. When you're done, you can roll it up (as a patch against the original or whatever makes senses).

Regards, Stuart

Wondering if anyone else has this particular type of situation.

I setup a continuous integration system involving ltib.  ltib also
builds kernel modules outside the source tree, so I have
PKG_KERNEL_LEAVESRC=y so the modules can build.  But when the kernel
spec is updated, ltib refuses to colbber the existing kernel build
directory and apply the updated spec (usually new patches).

I guess what I would like is if the the spec file is updated and ltib
detects a "directory build", is to go ahead and automatically clobber.
  Now sure where I can make this modification to ltib.  Or is there
some other way to accomplish this?
