Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-3165) prepare-release fails if run from source package
Date Tue, 31 May 2011 14:16:47 GMT


Robert Muir commented on LUCENE-3165:

One comment, but I'm not a native English speaker - is it correct to say "AN svn checkout
..." instead of "A svn checkout ..."?

Its confusing really, when to use 'a' or 'an' depends actually upon whether the word starts
with a vowel sound instead of a vowel letter. So you would say 'This test failed in an hourly
build yesterday', but you would say 'I bought a horse yesterday'

> While checking 3.2 RC2 artifacts, I ran "ant prepare-release" and it failed because "get-svn-info"
failed (since this is not a svn checkout). This makes sense indeed, but still annoying, so
question is how to overcome it? It attempts to execute "svn info" as part of "package-tgz-src".
When you run the latter to prepare the release, you want it to fail if "svn" does not exist,
however in the source package there's no '.svn' so it cannot succeed.
> On the other hand, nobody should "prepare a release" from the source package, so perhaps
the failure is ok, and we should disable the Ant target?
> I don't know how to solve it yet, so I'm marking it as a Blocker for 3.3, so that we
at least revisit it before then.
