Let's just hold off on the manpage for now. I've gone full force on this
makefile module and now have added support for all the packages you
build jonadab (full, svgonly, tools), and just now added the building of
the win32 binary installer (all unix/linux side!!!).
Soooo, now, please test out this infrastructure please jonadab (and
others) and see how it will work out. It is pretty self explanatory.
I decoupled the nsis directive from the make dist, which makes all the
packages into the 'packages' folder.
One has to install makensis (from nsis.sf.net) and then install it
somewhere, default, /opt/nsis, and then run:
This builds the openclipart-VERSION_NUM-win32.exe installer!
Rock! I'm plowing through tasks thx to my new Bryce/Kees style task
management...keep on running!
Check out the clipart_package module and read the INSTALL instructions
to see how the process works.
I hope this helps the packaging and release process as it is getting
