Consider adding picotest/picotest.[ch] to the release tarball #61
I googled for a solution, but could not find a way to create a custom source release using GitHub; it seems like that there is no way to configure how or replace the source release tarball.
@karya0 Do you see it as a requirement that there should be a test when building a distribution? Or is it just a suggestion?
If it is something required (or highly desirable) by somebody then I will run
Note: aerospike/aerospike-client-c#6 discusses the same issue.
Basically, if someone downloads just the tarball, and runs make test after extracting it, it fails.
Running test suite (if available) when building a distribution package is recommended, but not a requirement. Basically, it helps us prevent broken packages by detecting the errors during the build step rather than later when someone uses it.
Having said that, don't worry too much about it. I will just test the release locally and create the distro packages without "make test".
In the meanwhile, should we keep this issue open until we find a better solution?
