A week or so there was a discussion about the inconvenience of the
existence of `make bootstrap'. I suggested that we create a source
file bootstrap.el whose compiled file, bootstrap.elc, would control
whether `make emacs' does a bootstrap or not. We could also change
bootstrap.el trivially after installing any change which we think
makes it advisable for testers to bootstrap afresh.
I hope that this would eliminate the need for even developers to know
about `make boostrap'.
There was no reaction to this. What do people think of it?
