Subject: gtest: Could the CMakeLists.txt be shipped?
Date: Fri, 30 Mar 2012 14:34:26 -0400
Source: gtest
Version: 1.6.0-1
Severity: wishlist


Since the autotools scripts are deprecated, could the cmake scripts be
shipped similar to Ubuntu?

Besides the wont-fix bug that won't matter after the static libraries
get removed, this is the only change from Ubuntu left.

Below is the diff and the changelog entries related to it.


gtest (1.6.0-1ubuntu4) precise; urgency=low

  * debian/libgtest-dev.install:
    - also add the cmake subdirectory as it's needed by CMakeLists.txt

gtest (1.6.0-1ubuntu3) precise; urgency=low

  * debian/libgtest-dev.install:
    - ship the CMakeLists.txt in /usr/src/gtest/ to enable inclusion in cmake
      project now that we don't distribute static library. (ideally that would
      go in the cmake directory and we will generate the file to look at

gtest (1.6.0-1ubuntu2) precise; urgency=low

  * Stop distributing static library (although still build it, to ensure gtest
    works).  Upstream recommends against shipping the libary at all, just the
    source. (See:
    The Debian maintainer plans to do this also (see BTS: 639795); do it in
    Ubuntu now to fulfil MIR requirements.
