I will try to tune the batch for this too. How do you prefer the options
Now there are
build.bat [ release ] [ debug ] [ doc ] [ setup ]
May be I'm able to change this to
build.bat [ bconfig=[all | release | debug] # default: all
[ doc=[all | pdf | chm | html ] # default: all
[ setup=[all | <lang>] # default: all
if i.e. "setup=de", then the batch should build the english msi and the
The "all for everione" is
same as now.
The nightly could use
build bconfig=all doc=pdf setup=all
a private builder could use
build bconfig=release doc=pfd setup=de
(make sure all local changes are cleaned)
build bconfig=release doc=all setup=all
I'm not sure yet if I'll manage to split the option at "=" to key and
value by means of batch methods.
And perhaps it makes sense to make the "clean" inside the build.bat
controlable through an option.
clean = dist | normal | none
delete all local changes (even all built openssl objects)
the default as it is now
only use /build instead of /rebuild
dangerous at the momentan but o.k. if you know what you do

I agree the batches could could tuned a bit more but their functionality
(i.e. I tried to realize a "verbose copy" without using a external tool.
It is possible but ugly.)
But there are already a lot of build preconditions for tsvn. I
personally would prefer to not enlarge the number even more. i.e.: I
have nothing against NSIS, but perhaps NSIS could be kicked out, if
someone realise the language packages with WiX ?
Then there is room for one other build tool line nant ;-))
Sorry, just thinking loud. I don't know this better than you all.
(I'm german, so have limited humour ;-o and are fare from perfect in
writing english. So no one should feel affected by my words in any way.)
I will try to help but my time is limited. nant is interesting. As an
unix guru I would prefer doing it with make (or nmake) but why should I
spent my private time with old-fashioned things? ;-))
