#316 closed enhancement (wontfix)

need write access in srcdir to build

Reported by: Peter Johansson Owned by: Peter Johansson
Priority: trivial Milestone: svndigest 0.7

Description

Relates to r570.

subversion_info.cc is created in srcdir (not builddir), which implies that you cannot build svndigest if you lack write permission in the srcdir.

This is not very serious since most often srcdir equals builddir and this cannot be an issue. Moreover, when building from a tarball subversion_info.cc is not rebuilt, so this is only an issue for users working on a svn wc.

Replying to peter:

This issue will make make distcheck to fail.

That is not true because subversion_info.cc is built only from svn (not from a dist). Sorry about the confusion. This ticket is most likely invalid, but considering my confusion I let the ticket be here for now.

Ok, this is not really an issue. The file gotta be in srcdir because it is distributed and distributed files are by definition in srcdir. Perhaps one could solve it with a couple of if HAVE_SVN_WC, but it is not worth looking into because this is not really an issue.
