[Build-common-hackers] Questions about pre-build target (and debian/control)
Tue, 13 Apr 2004 11:19:33 +0200
the comment to the pre-build target in buildcore.mk says:
# This target is called before almost anything else happens. It's a good place
# to do stuff like unpack extra source tarballs, apply patches, and stuff. In
# the future it will be a good place to generate debian/control, but right
# now we don't support that very well.
Are there any real-world examples for using this target? What
is meant with "generate debian/control"? From which source?
