MapGuide repository modularization and cleaning
|Reported by:||gabrimonfa||Owned by:|
The problem: downloading code repository of current stable branch is 2.5GB
Since I'm not a MapGuide developer I'm by no mean pointing my finger against anyone. Current developers should obviously choose to organize the repository to suit their needs.
However the repository is indeed very big to download and manage for a user trying to compile MapGuide.
Some other consideration:
- BuildTool directory comprises an old 7zip binary version for windows
- Windows and Linux specific files are not separated
- Oem directory takes 1.9GB containg a lot of other software to be downloaded and compiled, often in older versions.
I think it would be helpful to move Oem in a separate repository, to state clearly which version of software is used and if there have been MapGuide specific customization.
