Fix: CPack source package creation #8197

wants to merge 1 commit into from

@frosch123 frosch123 commented Jun 6, 2020

This does not work as I would like it to:

  • "package_source" does not depend on "find_version". Thus source bundles will be named wrong, unless a real build was run before. No idea how to fix this.
  • "package_source" only has a black-list, but otherwise it bundles all files in the working directory. This may include secret stuff, or whatever temporary files are there. So essentially unsuitable to run locally.

I see two possible options for "find_version":

  • add an execute_process with the same command as "find_version" target (but version can be wrong if any changes happen between cmake run and the next real build run) I tried, that doesn't work. So only option 2 I guess.
  • add a custom target which will depend on "find_version" and will then run "package_source". This option would also allow to generate a temporary .ottdrev just for source packaging

I confirm the second issue, but there's probably a way to fill CPACK_SOURCE_IGNORE_FILES with .gitignore content and some git ls-files magic.

I tried something on master...glx22:pr/8197
It seems to work, may need some tweaking.

I like what you did @glx22 , as that ignores any non-git-committed-file, meaning it also picks up everything in .gitignore, which is really nice. It basically solves #2. And you solved #1 too. Would you mind dusting this off and pushing it either over @frosch123's branch (I don't know if he appreciates that, but I am sure it is fine :P) or make a new PR yourself?

Would be good to include this in the release-workflow PR we are working on :)
