Subject [jira] [Created] (ARROW-719) [GLib] Support prepared source archive release
Date Mon, 27 Mar 2017 14:53:42 GMT
Kouhei Sutou created ARROW-719:

             Summary: [GLib] Support prepared source archive release
                 Key: ARROW-719
             Project: Apache Arrow
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Kouhei Sutou

c_glib/ uses GNU Autotools (autoconf, libtool and so on) build system.
Normally, source archive that uses GNU Autotools build system includes configure script. Because
users don't need GNU Autotools if source archive includes configure script.

configure script is generated by running (autoreconf) with and Makefile.ams.

The current Apache Arrow release script (dev/ just runs "git archive". The generated
archive doesn't include configure script. So users need GNU Autotools.

I hope that c_glib/ source archive includes configure script. Normally, source archive is
generated by "make dist" for package that uses GNU Autotools. The generated source archive
includes configure script and all needed files.

How should I change the current release script? Should I change dev/, create a
new file or choose other approach?
