[Numpy-discussion] clearing after build; Some directories missing in .gitignore?
Mon Oct 25 06:52:26 CDT 2010
I was tearing my hear out yesterday evening with trying to find out
and to understand how this directories occur in the build process and
what role they play:
The build process of the docs is rather opaque to me, so I don't know
what to do with them.
The question is: Do I really have to clean my working directory
before doing a new build. I have problems with this because it seems
that the cleaning is neither complete nor is .gitignore (see above).
In pavement.py I read:
"""Remove everything: build dir, installers, bootstrap dirs, etc..."""
for d in [options.superpack.builddir, options.installers.releasedir]:
So :func:`nuke`, as opposed to what I was told before, also removes
the installers. :func:`clean` removes build/, dist/, numpy.egg-info/,
and doc/build/. :func:`clean_bootstrap` is a noop for us. None of
them treats the directories listed above.
I don't know if the generated docs in doc/source/reference/generated
are included automatically, so that garbage from previous builds could
make it into later doc builds?
Further, I don't know what may dangle around what I simply don't see
because it's hidden by .gitignore. E.g. what's about doc/cdoc/build?
doc/numpy.scipy.org/_build? I don't have this dirs, though.
I will, for now, just remove the directories listed above and hope
that :func:`clean` does the rest to the extent needed, but I really
have the impressions that the binary build system is rather "organic"
and needs a general overhaul.
A bit lost,
