Subject [jira] [Commented] (BIGTOP-433) Make variables used in build/install scripts consistent
Date Thu, 13 Sep 2012 01:34:08 GMT


Anatoli Fomenko commented on BIGTOP-433:

Following Bruno's comments in BIGTOP-695, I'm using the following guidelines while making
the install script consistent across different packages:
# Use spec and rules files' install sections to determine what variables are passed to the
install scripts
# Keep $PREFIX out of the variable definitions in the install files, to reduce duplicate work
in spec and rules files
# Use common variable names, e.g. $LIB_DIR, $MAN_DIR, $DOC_DIR, etc.
# Remove unused variables
> Make variables used in build/install scripts consistent

> I was working on some scripts across different packages and the inconsistencies make
it hard to work efficiently.
> Each script uses a different meaning for variables (ex: $PREFIX/$LIB_DIR vs $LIB_DIR
> Having a consistent set of variables would make it much easier to edit these scripts.
