Subject [jira] [Commented] (COR-22) Do not use within-repository folders for any build-related activity
Date Sat, 10 Jan 2015 21:37:34 GMT


jan iversen commented on COR-22:

it seems our build instructions needs to be updated, we build today without using any environment

I have nothing against environment variables when really needed, but that is of course only
my opinion. if all others are in favour of using it, then I will not block it.

I have simply seen through experience from e.g. AOO how the use of environment variables can
explode and lead to many funny effect when not set correctly.

> When building from the source, all transient data, including downloads of externals,
should happen separate from the source-code repository working copy.
> The repository working copy may be in a location that is not suitable for writing.  It
may also be a performance bottleneck to use the same location as the working repository for
transient build-related material.  There may also be storage-limitation considerations.
> Ideally, a build directory can be created anywhere and all build activities conduction
in that location, separate from the source-code repository.  One complication is any downloading
of external sources and libraries, and how those can be included in any build of the source
