Re: [augeas-devel] quick question about augeas and readline dependency

Ok. Thanks. I’ll look into trying to build a static lib version, as I do not trust the version showing up in AIX 7.2 (and AIX 7.1 TL5 and later)

I believe readline is actually important to augeas.  the HACKING.md even includes a section on how to get full readline functionality on OSX because libedit is a "crippled implmenentation"

I would like to try - again - to get certbot working on my platform
(AIX). As a dependency, acme needs python-augeas (which needs libaugeas,
which seems to need readline).

a) I can build readline - to get this resolved - IF augeas makes heavy
use of readline (all packages I have packaged previously either do not
need it, or it is optional - hence I am checking).

b) Is there a possibility for augeas to run without readline, and if yes
- I can look in configure.ac, but would appreciate help there - all via
github iirc.

So, quick question is: is readline absolutely necessary - yes/no answer
is fine.
