Subject: [PATCH 0/6] build-aux/bootstrap that doesn't need to replace itself
Date: Tue, 27 Dec 2022 10:59:55 -0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20221227190002.5660-1-eggert@cs.ucla.edu> (raw)

This set of patches addresses a problem I found with gzip
<https://bugs.gnu.org/56749>.  The idea is to add a new
feature to the bootstrap process so that a package can put just a
single bootstrap script into its repository, a script that does not
need to replace itself, while still providing a way for builders
to pull and generate in separate phases.

Paul Eggert (6):
  Move scriptversion= lines up in scripts
  Make autogen a shell function too
  Make autopull a shell function too
  Bootstrap with functions, not scripts
  Support packages with just 'bootstrap'
  Add --pull, --gen options to build-aux/bootstrap
