Subject [RT] Update to build system: location of blocks and gump
Date Thu, 13 Jan 2005 12:22:24 GMT
I'm currently thinking about making the build system able to include 
blocks from "external" locations, which means blocks that are not 
directly in the cocoon directory.
I'm thinking of a simple but working solution: I guess the easiest way 
would be to just add the root directory for a block to our gump 
descriptor. Currently the build system assumes that a block is located 
at src/blocks/BLOCKNAME.
When the build system uses this information from gump.xml, we can simply 
include a "local.gump.xml" containing some more projects into the 
gump.xml and build an aggregated description that is only used by the 
build process. Gump itself is not affected as it still uses the gump.xml.

So my questions are:
- Is there a possibility in gump to define the root directory for a block?
- Does this change have any impact on other parts that I oversee?
