|2 people starred this issue and may be notified of changes.||Back to list|
Task title: gnome-build is a library to parse automake/autoconf files in a way that IDEs can make use of them. Benefits: gnome-build currently has issues with some form of Makefile.am because there are lots of possibilities to write those files. While we won't ever be able to support all, this task should add support for some common use-cases. Requirements: A bit knowledge about automake and shell-scripts in general, perl programming Task description Consists of: Fix the following bugs in gnome-build: * http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=463408 * http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=472918 * http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=510351 * http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=450604 Most of the work is in src/backends/libgbf_am/gbf-am-parse.in. This is a perl source file that is used to parse the Makefile.am (with the help of two other perl files in GBF/ directory). There are various FIXME comments in there. Expected Outcome: Patches against the bugs in bugzilla Extra: Lots of TODO and FIXME in gnome-build so you won't run out of jobs when you had fun ;-) Links: gnome-build SVN: http://svn.gnome.org/viewvc/gnome-build/trunk/ Bugzilla: http://bugzilla.gnome.org/browse.cgi?product=gnome-build Estimated time: 7 days. Primary contact: Johannes Schmid <firstname.lastname@example.org> IRC: jhs, often in #gnome-hackers, #anjuta on irc.gnome.org If you have problems, just ask. The last bug might be tricky, so we will find a solution in case you cannot fix it because of various reasons.
