Re: cygport: Adding arbitrary files to the src package

Hi Marko,

The problem is, the file is generated during the build. Nevertheless it's not supposed to be part of the binary package but part of the source package. As far as I can see, if I add it to SRC_URI or PATCH_URI, cygport will try to unpack or apply it as patch during the prep stage, but the file won't exist at the time...

Hi Corinna,
I am not sure to have understood your case: a version of the file should be available before the build or not ?

If you need to add the file on the source tree before the build, the PATCH_URI allow to define a new file, but if you update the file during the build and you need to save the new file in the new source package foo-3.4.5-1.src.patch is the right tool, as
the new foo-3.4.1.src.patch in patch and spkg directory will
be different from the original foo-3.4.5-1.src.patch and the new version will be packed in foo3.4.5-1-src.tar.bz2 .

If the file is not needed before the build why do you need to save it on the source package ?


I am a bit confused...
