At least allow to specify it as command parameter to the Makefile. By default it could still point to the data dir...

Feature #1333: Allow to opt-out of installing changelog and / or license


#1 Updated by planetmaker almost 10 years ago

The directory for installing documentation files (other than Info) for this package. By default, it should be /usr/local/share/doc/yourpkg, but it should be written as $(datarootdir)/doc/yourpkg. (If you are using Autoconf, write it as ‘docdir’.) The yourpkg subdirectory, which may include a version number, prevents collisions among files with common names, such as README.

#2 Updated by Ammler almost 10 years ago

maintainers will need to change your default anyway, unless you will also supply configuration of prefix: /usr/local -> /usr

therefor I wouldn't make it too complicated, just allow modification of DATADIR and DOCDIR

something which might be useful by Fedora Maintainer:
let installing of docs disable with DOCDIR=

#3 Updated by planetmaker almost 10 years ago

  • Status changed from Assigned to Closed
  • % Done changed from 0 to 100

in r212
use DO_NOT_INSTALL_[DOCS|LICENSE|CHANGELOG] in order to specify which files shall be skipped in the install process
