Ok, first of all, thanks Harald for the input and your offer, as much as I appreciate it I don't think we really want to move to some random other build system. Installing gnome-common shouldn't be a problem for anyone, because this package has no gnome specific dependencies. A downside of moving to cmake is that (afaik) noone in our core team has experience with cmake, which makes maintaining the build system hard for us. If we decide to switch the build system (someone has to come up with a very good reason in this bug, please) we should move to a system which is optimized to what we need - building python packages, distutils seems to be the only alternative for me.

So there must be another way to build from trunk easily. Building from a source package works. But again some devs want trunk. Lets make this easier for them. _______________________________________________ Mailing list: https://launchpad.net/~zeitgeist Post to : email@example.com Unsubscribe : https://launchpad.net/~zeitgeist More help : https://help.launchpad.net/ListHelp
