Description Sergey Popov gentoo-dev 2013-08-21 15:20:32 UTC
See $summary. It would be nice to do such assumption, e.g. do dodoc -r instead of just dodoc in default src_install phase
Comment 2 Tiziano Müller (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2014-06-05 07:30:11 UTC
Would it make sense to introduce "rsync-syntax" here as in:

  DOCS="directory/" does the same as "dodoc -r directory/*"
  DOCS="directory" does the same as "dodoc -r directory"

I'd rather not, especially since the interpretation of trailing slashes has changed in POSIX.1-2008, insofar as "directory/" is no longer defined as being equivalent to "directory/." (as it still was in POSIX.1-2004).

AFAICS, an explicit DOCS="directory/." should work for the first case above.

well, DOCS="directory/." is ok as well, as long as we have a way to express "dodoc directory/*" somehow.
