1  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / Technical Issues / Re: How to install for packaging? on: February 13, 2012, 01:54:31 pm
What you suggested is a wrong way to do. I've already done it by modifying script with sed script before even posting here. That doesn't change the topic.

The reason for the releasing delay is that the people are busy. And the thing to always patch the source before adding it to package adds to this complexity. You stated that nothing changed since 0.6.0, so what? The man modified 0.6 version to comply the needs of packaging. Now it has to check if  something is changed and move the patch to new version. Do you expect that it has to do this always? Are you interested anyway in the program distribution and in a lot of people being able to enjoy from the new version?

In real world there are some de facto standards that help people cooperate effectively. Not knowing them and reinventing the wheel (such as your own build system) doesn't help much.

No, I'm not referring to build directory. I'm referring to what exactly I said: temporary install directory. In autotools world this is achieved by overriding PREFIX or INSTALL_PREFIX  on (only on) installation phase. I suppose it is impossible for current custom build system? Then packaging (without patching) is impossible. No wonder why there is no 0.7.0 in Debian. This is serious subject to open bug report.

Packaging system (for example Debian) requires to install into temporary custom location. But the program must be configured to final destination location!
The variables in config.state specify the final location. But I didn't found the measure to specify temporary custom location for 0.7.0. In 0.6.2 it were

DESTDIR=${CURDIR}/debian/uqm ./ uqm install

what was used in Debian package. How to achieve that in 0.7.0?
