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
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:

Most of the work is in src/backends/libgbf_am/ This is a
perl source file that is used to parse the (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 ;-)

gnome-build SVN:

Estimated time: 7 days.

Primary contact:
Johannes Schmid <>
IRC: jhs, often in #gnome-hackers, #anjuta on

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.
