Subject [jira] [Created] (COUCHDB-1437) Refactor
Date Fri, 09 Mar 2012 23:48:57 GMT

                 Key: COUCHDB-1437
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Build System
    Affects Versions: 1.3
            Reporter: Paul Joseph Davis

Working on COUCHDB-1426 today has made me hate life a little bit more. Our build system shouldn't
be this complex. Mostly this has to do with us not using m4 in a way that doesn't lead to
horrendous spaghetti code. New plan is to create a number of new files like:

    * m4/couch_erlang.m4
    * m4/couch_icu_drv.m4
    * m4/couch_js.m4
    * m4/couch_snappy.m4
    * m4/couch_windows.m4 (maybe? not sure how hard this will be to extract)

Given these files the plan will be to make just run a top-level macro from each
file. Hopefully we can then have much cleaner definitions through out the configure stuff
so that when something breaks it'll be more obvious why and where to look for an answer.
