this call to install.sh is generated ! See
the source just lists the header in xmlinc_HEADERS, and auto* does

I confirm issue.
FSF install-sh support (from automake):
Usage: ..../install-sh [OPTION]... [-T] SRCFILE DSTFILE
or: ..../install-sh [OPTION]... SRCFILES... DIRECTORY
or: ..../install-sh [OPTION]... -t DIRECTORY SRCFILES...
or: ..../install-sh [OPTION]... -d DIRECTORIES...
Also .gitignore list following "automake" files :
but don't include following "automake" files :
It seems to me inconsistent.
Hum, right. I guess it's back from CVS, and old times where
we knew the config.* would change on a regular basis.
You could replace files:
with files from automake package (usually located in
/usr/share/automake*/ ) either manually or as run command
"automake --force-missing --add-missing --copy --foreign"
Yup that refreshes them, I commited the 3 updates. Now the question
- should those files provided by auto* be in git ?
+ in a sense they are part of what makes a release
+ but they are somehow generated as coming from auto*
- if we pick yes then maybe the 3 others should be added too
- if we pick no then we should just remove them from git and
list them in gitignore
I don't know yet what's really the best approach, the status quo was
fine until now but after a decade or so it managed to bite us :-)
