Packaging Notes and TODOs

Automated creating kexi-only source tarballs

 status: to be created

Kexi-only source tarballs can be provided for users who don't mind to run Kexi and not other KOffice app. It's not designed for packagers.

We need to update tools/build_tarball/build_kexi_tarball.sh script so libraries koffice/lib/ are packaged as well. This script currently only packages kexi subdir. Due to dependencies, following directories should go to the tarball (currently missing are in bold):

 koffice/lib/koproperty
 koffice/lib/kofficecore
 koffice/lib/kofficeui
 koffice/lib/kross
 koffice/lib/store
 koffice/lib/kwmf
 koffice/lib/kotext
 koffice/kexi

Alternatively, we can patch kofficecore and kofficeui to avoid dependencies on store, kwmf and kotext, as these are currently unused in Kexi.

Additional change required: remove all app names except kexi from koffice/Makefile.am.in, what will result in subdirs file containing only following dirs:

 lib
 kexi

Properly packaged tarball (by hand, requires autotools) using above rules:  http://iidea.pl/~js/kexi/src/kexi-2006-src.tar.bz2 (2006-02-28)
