Subject [jira] Commented: (AXIS2C-1436) Upgrade autotools
Date Thu, 25 Feb 2010 13:57:27 GMT


Olivier Mengué commented on AXIS2C-1436:

What is the problem?
Is it that Fedora 10 does not have autoconf 2.63, as it is what you committed ?

Is Fedora 10 support a strong requirement for Axis2/C developers (WSO2 ?) ?
If yes I understand that you do not want to commit that. But you could at least do the autotools
upgrade in the Fedora 10 environment and commit that.
And wouldn't it be possible to make your release build in an environment that the highest
version of autotools possible as it would help to avoid problems for people who have to compile
the source code on non Linux platforms where installing autotools is not an easy solution?

On my side I'm using autoconf 2.64, automake 1.11 and libtool 2.2.6a in an Ubuntu 9.10 virtual
machine. I'm repackaging the source with this upgraded autotools to make the build work on
AIX 5.
