Hi, we have several cyclic dependencies due to e.g. packages depending on each other only for building the documentation. Examples are numpy and matpltlib.
So I wonder it it would be possible to to something like this: (define-public numpy:doc (inherit numpy) (name "numpy:doc") (outputs "doc") (inputs … matplotlib …) (… modify-phases …)) This would at least help breaking cycles where only specific the documentation is effected. It will still not solve more complex situation we have for python--tk--libxck--python, i assume. But maybe this could be generalized. -- Regards Hartmut Goebel | Hartmut Goebel | h.goe...@crazy-compilers.com | | www.crazy-compilers.com | compilers which you thought are impossible |
