[racket-dev] package source as a Git repo

2014-10-18 Thread Matthew Flatt
The development version of the package manager now supports Git
repository references using http[s]:// and sites other than GitHub.
That is, a package source can have the form

 git://host/[...]

for a host other than github.com, and a source can have one of the
forms

 http://[...].git
 https://[...].git

which use the Git protocol over a smart HTTP(S) transport. In
particular, the HTTPS URL that appears on a GitHub repository page
will work directly as a package source.


Since generalized Git repository references are not supported in the
upcoming v6.1.1 release, it will be a while before you'll want to
publish package sources using the new forms.

  Meanwhile, I haven't answered your original question. Can you remind me
  of the specific steps that I'd need to follow to try the script that
  you sent before?
 
 With your indulgence, I'll just answer this part now. I have re-included
 the Makefile as an attachment, since make is fussy about whitespace.
 
 Save the attached file to e.g. /tmp/test.mk
 
 In a recent checkout of the release branch, 
 
 % make -f /tmp/test.mk build-indep-stamp
 
 the resulting build of racket will be in test-dest, in the top level
 directory of racket. For me, test-dest/usr/bin only has racket and raco
 in it.

The problem is that `make install` works with a configuration whose
paths are based on DESTDIR, but as its final act it rewrites
config.rktd and other files to strip away DESTDIR. That rewrite tells
the later use of `raco pkg install` to put binaries in the DESTDIRless
path (i.e., /usr/bin), and so on. It's a kind of bad luck that `raco
pkg install` runs at all, since it could depend on the DESTDIRless pass
in any number of ways, such as an embedded path in a shared library.

If you really want to go this way, I could extend the makefile to let
you supply a command that runs before the path-fixup step of `make
install`. Then, your test.mk would look more like this:

build-arch-stamp: ${base_build_dir}/Makefile
$(MAKE) -C ${base_build_dir} 
$(MAKE) -C ${base_build_dir} DESTDIR=${destdir} install \
  FINAL_PREP_CMD=cd $(CURDIR) \
   $(MAKE) RACKET=''${PRERACKET}'' \
 local-source-catalog \
   ${PRERACKET} -N raco -l- \
  pkg install ${raco_args} \
  main-distribution racket-lib
touch $@

 Checklist items for the v6.1.1 release
   (using the v6.1.0.900 release candidate build)

 Search for your name to find relevant items, reply when you finish an
 item (please indicate which item/s is/are done).  Also, if you have any
 commits that should have been picked, make sure that the changes are in.

 Important: new builds are created without announcement, usually whenever
 I pick a few commits.  If you need to commit changes, please make sure
 you tell me to pick it into the release branch.

 -- Release candidates are at
 --   http://pre-release.racket-lang.org

 Please use these installers (or source bundles) -- don't test from
 your own git clone (don't test the `master' branch by mistake!).  To
 get the tests, you can do this:

   cd ...racket-root...
   ./bin/raco pkg install -i main-distribution-test
