Problem description

  • Made the yast2-testsuite check only a warning, otherwise too many packages would break.
  • prefixbuild/pfx: Let also Perl search in the prefix (via PERL5LIB).
  • 2.13.29
  • Run pkg-config at configure time, not at make time (#208998).
  • For YCP packages, check for yast2-testsuite at configure time (#208999).
  • 2.13.28
  • "make dist" will honor CHECK_SYNTAX=false
  • 2.13.27
  • Docbook configure check: fixed when no catalog found, and don't overwrite config.log.
  • prefixbuild/recreate -t: run configure instead of config.status
  • prefixbuild/yp: honor PREFIX
  • 2.13.26
  • With xgettext 0.15, "--keyword=_:1,2" alone did not trigger for single-form messages. Added "--keyword=_" to fix that.
  • Added yast2-trans-et to all-packages.
  • 2.13.25
  • Fixed the autodocs if there were no *.pm files.
  • 2.13.24
  • Check for docbook-xml-stylesheets if using docbook (#157629).
  • autodocs-ycp.ami: Generate docs also from *.pm sources, by pod2html (F#415).
  • ycpdoc: Ignore *.pm but write them to files.html (F#415).
  • 2.13.23
  • po makefiles: cope with both old and new suse-i18n directory layout (ke).
  • yast2-devtools.pc: removed libdir because this is a noarch package.
  • prefixbuild: Another fix to honor PREFIX in the environment.
  • 2.13.22
  • Added yast2-sudo to all-packages.
  • Added yast2-trans-ca to all-packages (#190072).
  • Better parsing of "listmap" and the like not to mistake it for a function declaration (#133662).
  • Prevent false positives for check-textdomain in core and perl-bindings.
  • 2.13.21
  • Fixed makefiles for make 3.81
  • 2.13.20
  • all-packages: added yast2-trans-{el,sl,vi}; kept yast2-trans-{el_GR,sl_SI} for SLE 10 compatibility.
  • New tag alias 'Author' -> 'Authors' in ycpdoc (bug #188881).
  • Teaching scrdoc one-line tags, general description, tag-aliases, fixing mount-point identification, etc.
  • tagversion: do not break the tag if run again.
  • Sort YCP builtins in generated doc alphabetically, ASC.
  • Added check_buildrequires and checkall_buildrequires utilities as substitutes for check_neededforbuild and checkall_neededforbuild
  • Fixed filtering for files that contain translated messages while making pot files (#173826, etoulas).
  • 2.13.19
