Subject [jira] [Created] (COUCHDB-1628) THANKS generation uses a non-portable sed extended regexp flag
Date Wed, 12 Dec 2012 23:37:21 GMT
Christopher Bonhage created COUCHDB-1628:
--------------------------------------------

             Summary: THANKS generation uses a non-portable sed extended regexp flag
                 Key: COUCHDB-1628
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-1628
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Build System
            Reporter: Christopher Bonhage


The bootstrap script currently generates a THANKS file by grepping through the git shortlog
and running an extended regular expression command on the resulting stream using sed (line
48):

git shortlog -se 6c976bd..HEAD \
        | grep -v @apache.org \
        | sed -E "s/^[[:blank:]]{5}[[:digit:]]+[[:blank:]]/ * /" >> THANKS

BSD sed uses the '-E' option to interpret regular expressions as extended (modern) regular
expressions rather than basic regular expressions (BRE's). GNU sed uses the '-r' option for
this behavior.

The bootstrap script should be modified to detect the proper flag to use. I am currently using
a patch which checks the system's uname to determine the flag.
