Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-592) Build and configure without the js library
Date Fri, 04 Dec 2009 23:41:20 GMT


Paul Joseph Davis commented on COUCHDB-592:

The downside is on the theoretical side and for me its a hold the line type of position. I
wouldn't veto a patch for it but I'm not about to write it.

The issue is that once we start doing allowing the official releases to have all sorts of
conditional compilation options we have to officially support each permutation of those options.
Spending extra time tracking down weird compilation configurations is not something I would

And there's also the fact that this is a pretty easy hack to remove all parts of the build
system that'd require JS, cURL, and ICU. And the build system doesn't change *that* often
so it wouldn't be hard too hard to keep in sync outside of trunk.
