Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-3165) prepare-release fails if run from source package
Date Tue, 31 May 2011 14:18:48 GMT


Uwe Schindler commented on LUCENE-3165:

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

a / an depends on the sound not the letter the following word starts with. For this reason
its "a (j)uniform" not "an (j)uniform". As SVN is here pronounced as "es vi en", it is "an
SVN checkout".

> 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.
