Subject: RFC: Timeline for deprecating the autoconf build system?
Date: Friday 31st October 2014 22:08:21 UTC (over 3 years ago)
Hi, I would like to propose deprecating the autoconf build system at some point in the future. Maintaining two build systems is a hassle not only for this project, but also for other projects that use LLVM and have to deal with the slight differences in output between the two build systems. It seems like most people are using CMake at this point, so my questions to the community are: - Is there any technical reason why the remaining autoconf users can't switch to CMake? For example, I personally use automake, and the only reason I don't use CMake is because it doesn't produce a single shared object (e.g. libLLVM-3.6.0svn.so). - What is a reasonable timeframe to allow the remaining autoconf users a chance to migrate to CMake? Thanks, Tom
