            Bug ID: 54245
           Summary: TomcatRepo\build.xml:2668:
                    TomcatRepo\output\manifests\default does not exist
           Product: Tomcat 8
           Version: trunk
          Hardware: PC
            Status: NEW
          Severity: trivial
          Priority: P2
         Component: Packaging
          Assignee: dev@tomcat.apache.org

Hi,

I'm using Tomcat Git repository available in github -
git@github.com:apache/tomcat.git

When I tried to build Tomcat sources I received the following problem:

TomcatRepo/build.xml:2668: TomcatRepo/output/manifests/default does not exist

This problem does not happen when I use Tomcat SVN repository.

The problem is the following:
In the SVN repository there is an empty directory
TomcatRepo/res/META-INF/default. This directory is copied to the output
directory by the "build-manifests" target.
In the Git repository there is no such directory -
https://github.com/apache/tomcat/tree/trunk/res/META-INF
That's because you cannot add an empty folder to the Git repository. If you
really want an empty directory then you should add .gitignore file in it.
