Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-23) Make build system check bootstrapping
Date Sun, 30 Oct 2011 19:46:32 GMT


Noah Slater commented on COUCHDB-23:

I just had to check and again to make sure I wasn't missing anything.
This ticket describes the situation where running make checks to see at what revision ./bootstrap
was run, and prompt the user to re-run ./bootstrap if the current revision is more recent,
before bailing. Same for ./configure as well. As far as I can see, we never implemented this.
It's a handy check for people who are building from source. If anything changes that is used
as input to ./bootstrap or ./configure then the user should be notified that they need to
go back to the beginning of the process to make sure the generated files are up to date.
