Re: [trinity-devel] Trinity 3.5.12 pre-release source tarballs

Hmm. I did not get the memo.

My test run a day ago with test 3.5.12 tarballs went okay. I did not try to build all files but just a few.

Today I tried and the build scripts kept failing.

First thing I finally discover is the file compression is tar.gz and not tar.bz2. When did that change?

Second, the non-core packages all have "3.5.12" in the source tarball file name. Previously those packages used a local version.

arts: 1.5.10
koffice: 1.6.3
k3b: 1.0.5

Now all of them are 3.5.12.

Third, when the non-core tarballs unpack, they are in a subdirectory rather than just under the package name. For example, both tqtinterface and arts unpack to a parent directory named dependencies. Koffice, knemo, k3b, etc all unpack to a parent directory named applications. Yes, that matches SVN, but the tarballs don't need to match SVN. Downstream builders will not be expecting that. They will expect the unpacked tarball to be in its own directory of the same name.

My build process is broken.
