macros2: Deprecate GNOME_CODE_COVERAGE (14.44 KB, patch)

Description Philip Withnall 2014-05-02 15:09:29 UTC
After discussion with David at the developer hackfest, the GNOME_CODE_COVERAGE macro should be moved to the autoconf-archive[1], since it has wider application than just within GNOME.

The upstreamed macro could then be copied back into gnome-common, or copied into the m4 directory in each project which uses it. I suggest the latter, since it interacts quite closely with the module’s build system, so should be next to it rather than in an external module.

Submitted to autoconf-archive here:

The autoconf-archive AX_CODE_COVERAGE macro should be used instead.

Review of attachment 284461 [details] [review]:

Looks fine. Do any of this and the other deprecations need a bump to the M4 serial?

The upstream version has been pushed to the archive:

David, perhaps one of us should blog about this? Or is it too early?
Comment 6 David King 2014-09-15 11:14:32 UTC
Cool! Probably best that you blog, as you did the work and are on Planet GNOME.
Comment 7 Eric Gallager 2014-11-20 23:09:04 UTC
This caused the same conflict with the autoconf-archive package as I mentioned in
(but with ax_code_coverage.m4 here, as opposed to ax_check_enable_debug.m4 in the other one)

(In reply to Eric Gallager from comment #7)

That is now covered by bug 747920 (with a patch that will be applied soon).
