though. I'll even stop whining about putting autoconf-generated in
CVS (I'll still think that it's a huge mistake, I just won't say
anything about it :-) ).
do you think it's a mistake even if they're commited under
non-standard names? i agree that they probably shouldn't be committed
under their real names, because that does cause confusion, and can
lead to inadvertent commits.
What's the point of committing them at all? They're what's produced by
the committer's particular version of auto*. It's like me checking in
main.o -- it reflects my compiler chain.
Anyone expecting to build from CVS should also be prepared to have
suitable auto* tools. The tar files of source releases contain the
auto* output so that's useful for posterity and debugging build bug
