Hi list,

Is there any particular reason to distribute files generated during build within the releases tarballs ? I particularly think about the python/libxml2-py.c file, which, interestingly, doesn't even have the same contents during the build that the one provided in the tarball. If there's no reason for that, I'll provide a patch to the to avoid its distribution.

  Because it is needed when building the libxml2-python tarball.

What do you mean ? There's a special target in the Makefiles to create a libxml2-python tarball ? Then it may not be needed to include the .c file in the libxml2 tarball.

Now if you get a different content, it's a problem, unless you specified
some configuration options which led to that difference.

The only configure options are:
./configure --prefix=/usr --with-python=/usr/bin/python2.3

And it definitely leads to a different file. I didn't investigate in which way it is different, though.
