Re: [libvirt] [PATCH 2/2] build: require more tools from maintainers

On 12/02/2011 01:50 PM, Eric Blake wrote:
We want our tarballs to be complete - this means that any
generated file that gets shipped as part of the tarball so that
ordinary users don't have to rebuild it must be something
that the maintainer can generate.  There have been various
reports of random build failures when using libvirt.git
instead of a tarball, and often it is due to missing a
maintainer-specific tool to produce one of these generated
files.  This patch raises the bar for what you must have
installed to build libvirt.git, but does not impact what
you can get away with for building tarballs.

Note: It still remains possible to do a successful 'make dist'
without these tools, when starting from a release tarball.

* bootstrap.conf (buildreq): Add tools that maintainers need for a
successful 'make dist' from a fresh git checkout.
