Subject [jira] [Created] (MESOS-8988) Allow for unbundled dependencies.
Date Wed, 13 Jun 2018 23:12:00 GMT
Till Toenshoff created MESOS-8988:

             Summary: Allow for unbundled dependencies.
                 Key: MESOS-8988
             Project: Mesos
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: build
            Reporter: Till Toenshoff

Our CMake setup currently bundles all dependencies and does not allow for building against
unbundled dependencies.

We should allow for unbundled dependencies as well.

a. It has proven to be problematic to enforce building against the bundled versions of our
dependencies. Bundled versions may or may not be compatible with all of our supported platforms.
Namely Libevent >= 2.1.x fails our libprocess tests on macOS and Ubuntu 17. This in turn
prevents us from switching to SSL by default on all platforms.
b. Historically we tried to not enforce bundling and therefor allowing linux distros to supply
Mesos packages. 
c. Module authors need to link against the exact same dependency versions, where needed. Our
autotools setup specifically allows for using unbundled dependencies, supporting module authors
to cover this task.

Offering bundled dependencies is per-se a good thing as it eases the pain building Mesos -
we just need to make that optional.
