Create a build rule for archiving Haiku's local sources
|Reported by:||mmadia||Owned by:||bonefish|
|Has a Patch:||no||Platform:||All|
Similar to #5110 and #5482, this proposed rule would compress the local source repository and add it to the image. This would be activated on
configure --include-sources or
HAIKU_INCLUDE_SOURCES = 1 . The new rule would exclude repository specific folders (.svn, .hg, .git) and generated* from the archive. The source archive would be installed via a rule similar to InstallSourceArchive -- perhaps modify that rule to treat <file> as an absolute path when <url> is not provided.
Though, I'm uncertain how the buildtools repository would be handled.
If this is an acceptable enhancement, please re-assign to me.
