Hi, everyone.  Since the Qpid 0.28 release, I've been using a particular
tool to generate and test releases.  Here's my previous post on the topic:


Besides renaming the tool to "quirk", I've now extended it for developer
use cases.  If you want to develop your own component against an unreleased
version of a Qpid module, this tool aims to help you get up and running

On Fedora 19 or newer, this should get you started:

  # One time setup #
  % rpm -ivh
  % sudo yum install quirk

  # Operation #
  % quirk install --module dispatch
  % source <(quirk env)
  % qdrouterd

The '--module' argument limits the scope of quirk's work.  Without it,
quirk carries out the given task for every Qpid module.  The
quirk-generated install is entirely isolated under $HOME/.quirk/output.
The line "source <(quirk env)" modifies your current shell environment to
use the new install tree.

If you'd prefer to have it install to a location that is already in your
search paths, use --prefix:

  % quirk install --prefix $HOME/.local

Yum repo and  release rpm:

Please give it a try and tell me if it works for you.
