1.4.3rc2: File datestamps in distributions wrong
|Reported by:||warmerdam||Owned by:||mloskot|
In the gdal-1.4.3rc2.tar.gz the datestamp on pymod/gdal.i is newer than that on gdal_wrap.c resulting in an attempt to regenerate gdal_wrap.c during an old-gen python build. This generally screws up gdal_wrap.c since it can only be regenerated by a very specific swig version.
A minimal solution (apparently) would be to modify mkgdaldist.sh to use svn export instead of svn checkout, since svn export preserves file datestamps properly. But I'm very irritated at this general problem since it will generally screw up folks doing svn checkout's for local development.
