ChangeLog  (automake-1.16.2.tar.xz):ChangeLog  (automake-1.16.3.tar.xz)
2020-11-18 Jim Meyering <meyering@fb.com>
version 1.16.3
* configure.ac (AC_INIT): Bump version number to 1.16.3.
* m4/amversion.m4: Likewise (auto-updated by "make bootstrap").
* NEWS: Record release version.
2020-11-16 Jim Meyering <meyering@fb.com>
tests: correct preceding change.
* t/auxdir-pr19311.sh: Fix error in case stmt and match more
upcoming versions.
2020-11-16 Jim Meyering <meyering@fb.com>
tests: auxdir-pr19311.sh no longer fails with latest autoconf
* t/list-of-tests.mk (XFAIL_TESTS): Remove from this list.
* t/auxdir-pr19311.sh: Instead, run this test only when autoconf
is 2.69d or newer. Otherwise, skip it.
2020-11-16 Jim Meyering <meyering@fb.com>
maint: placate maintainer-check's rm -f check
* t/vala-recursive-setup.sh: Add an unnecessary -f option
to an rm invocation to avoid "make maintainer-check" failure.
2020-11-15 Jim Meyering <meyering@fb.com>
maint: Update files from upstream with 'make fetch'
* lib/config.guess: Update.
* lib/config.sub: Likewise.
* lib/texinfo.tex: Likewise.
2020-11-15 Jim Meyering <meyering@fb.com>
tests: avoid missing .dvi failure with parallel tests
* t/txinfo-no-clutter.sh: Tests of texinfo-related rules
had overlap that made them fail often when some rules were
run in parallel, so inhibit parallelism in that one directory.
See discussion starting at
https://lists.gnu.org/r/automake-patches/2020-11/msg00011.html
2020-11-15 Jim Meyering <meyering@fb.com>
tests: protect against parallel false failure
* t/parallel-tests-console-output.sh: Do not depend on the order
of items in test summary. With a parallel test run, they may
appear in a different order, e.g., when running tests like this:
make check AM_TESTSUITE_MAKE='make -j14'
Sort the expected output and the actual output before comparing.
2020-11-15 Jim Meyering <meyering@fb.com>
doc: fix quoting in suggested parallel test invocation
* t/README: Fix reversed single/double quotes.
2020-11-14 Jim Meyering <meyering@fb.com>
tests: accommodate an $ac_aux_dir of "." or "./"
* t/auxdir-pr15981.sh: This test would fail when run with
autoconf-2.69d because $ac_aux_dir would be "./" rather than
the expected ".". Accept both.
2020-11-14 Jim Meyering <meyering@fb.com>
tests: avoid failures due to missing ar-lib
* t/ar4.sh: Create dummy ar-lib, as done in other tests,
to avoid failure like this:
configure: error: cannot find required auxiliary files: ar-lib
* t/ar5.sh: Likewise.
2020-11-13 Karl Berry <karl@freefriends.org>
install-sh: trailing whitespace.

vala: forgot to update lists-of-tests.mk.
* t/list-of-tests.mk (handwritten_tests): include
t/vala-libs-distcheck.sh and t/vala-libs-vpath.sh.
Should have been committed with 2020-10-29 vala change,
but somehow missed.

vala: improve support, especially builddir vs. srcdir.
This change fixes https://bugs.gnu.org/13002.
* NEWS: mention these changes.
* bin/automake.in: generated C files go in builddir, not srcdir.
Distribute the header files generated from VAPI files.
* t/vala-libs-distcheck.sh: new test for `make distcheck' of a
Vala library.
* t/vala-libs-vpath.sh: new test for a VPATH build of a Vala library.
* t/vala-libs.sh: add local VAPIs used as external --package to test.
* t/vala-recursive-setup.sh: we need to make
maintainer-clean at one point to remove stamp files to avoid
confusing a VPATH build performed after a non-VPATH build.
* t/vala-non-recursive-setup.sh: likewise.
* t/vala-parallel.sh: some test paths need changing to take into
account that generated C files now go in builddir.
* t/vala-per-target-flags.sh: likewise.
* t/vala-recursive-setup.sh: likewise.
* t/vala-vpath.sh: likewise.
2020-11-07 Karl Berry <karl@freefriends.org>
tests: recompute dependencies when lists-of-tests.mk changes.
This change fixes https://bugs.gnu.org/44458
and updates https://bugs.gnu.org/11347.
* t/local.mk ($(srcdir)/%D/testsuite-part.am): restore
dependency on '%D/list-of-tests.mk' (i.e., t/list-of-tests.mk),
partially reverting the change of 26 Apr 2012 for bug#11347.
Otherwise, new tests that have dependencies will not cause an
update of testsuite-part.am, leading to strange failures
(bug#44458). The original problem being fixed in #11347 was
unnecessary rebuilding when modifying tests; that should not be
affected here, but when new tests are added, it seems reasonable,
as well as necessary, to ensure dependencies are updated.

python: determine Python (3.10) version number correctly.
This change fixes https://bugs.gnu.org/44239
(and https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1889732).
* m4/python.m4: use print('%u.%u' % sys.version_info[:2]) for
the version number instead of merely sys.version[:3], so the
numbers are treated as numbers.
* t/python-vars.sh (PYTHON_VERSION): Likewise.
* doc/automake.texi: Document it.
* NEWS: mention it. (Minor tweaks from Karl Berry.)
2020-10-23 Jim Meyering <meyering@fb.com>
doc: correct "moved in", to "moved to"
* NEWS: Correct wording.
* contrib/README: Likewise.
* doc/automake.texi: Likewise.

contrib/README: fix and clarify the English
2020-10-23 Reuben Thomas <rrt@sc3d.org>
Improve Vala compiler detection: use API version, not compiler version
* m4/vala.m4: check `valac --api-version', not `valac --version'.
* doc/automake.texi: update documentation.
2020-10-07 Zack Weinberg <zackw@panix.com>
Use complete configure.ac’s in testsuite.
Autoconf 2.70 will issue warnings if it encounters a configure.ac that do
esn’t
call both AC_INIT and AC_OUTPUT.
Automake already issues warnings if it encounters a configure.ac that use
s an
AM_ macro but doesn’t call AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE or AC_CONFIG_FILES([Makefile]
).
In two places, the testsuite was tripping these warnings, leading to spur
ious
failures with Autoconf 2.70 betas.
* t/aminit-moreargs-deprecation.sh: Add AC_OUTPUT to test configure.ac.
* t/mkdirp-deprecation.sh: Use a complete test configure.ac, not a stub
containing only a use of AM_PROG_MKDIR_P.
2020-10-06 Karl Berry <karl@freefriends.org>
automake: install-exec did not depend on $(BUILT_SOURCES).
This change fixes https://bugs.gnu.org/43683.
* lib/am/install.am (install-exec): %maybe_BUILT_SOURCES% dependency,
twice. Basic patch from madmurphy (tiny change), message#8.
(.MAKE) [maybe_BUILT_SOURCES]: depend on install-exec.
* NEWS: mention it.
* doc/automake.texi (Sources): mention this (also that make dist
depends on $(BUILT_SOURCES)).
* t/built-sources-install-exec.sh: new test.
* t/list-of-tests.mk (handwritten_TESTS): add it.
* t/built-sources-install.sh: typo.
* t/built-sources-check.sh: typo.
2020-09-21 Zack Weinberg <zackw@panix.com>
Update documentation of warnings options and strictness levels.
The warning categories ‘cross’ and ‘portability-recursive’ were not menti
oned
in the manual.
Also clarify the relationship between warnings categories and strictness
levels, and streamline the description of strictness levels by merging th
e
“Gnits” section into the “Strictness” section.
* doc/automake.texi (Gnits, Strictness): Combine these sections.
Minor revisions to explanation of strictness levels.
(automake Invocation): Add documentation of all the warnings
categories that have been added since the last time this section
was updated. Minor clarifications.
2020-09-21 Zack Weinberg <zackw@panix.com>
Use WARNINGS=none to suppress warnings from autom4te runs.
aclocal uses autom4te in trace mode to scan configure.ac for macros whose
definition is not yet available. It has a kludge to prevent this from
producing spurious warnings, but a cleaner, fully backward compatible, wa
y to
get the same effect is to set WARNINGS=none in the environment and not pa
ss
down any -W options. (This is better than passing -Wnone on the command
line
because it automatically inherits to any subprocesses started by autom4te
.)
Perl’s ‘local’ feature can be used to make the enviironment variable sett
ing
temporary, reverting to the previous value when we exit the function.
automake also runs autom4te (technically autoconf) in trace mode; warning
s
from this invocation will not be *spurious*, but in the common case where
the person running automake is going to run autoconf next, they will be
duplicated. Therefore, make the same change to automake.
* bin/aclocal.in (trace_used_macros)
* bin/automake.in (scan_autoconf_traces):
Use “local $ENV{WARNINGS}='none'” to suppress warnings from autom4te.
2020-09-18 Zack Weinberg <zackw@panix.com>
New utility function Automake::ChannelDefs::merge_WARNINGS.
This function merges a list of warnings categories into the environment
variable WARNINGS, returning a new value to set it to. The intended use
is in code of the form
{
local $ENV{WARNINGS} = merge_WARNINGS ("this", "that");
# run a command here with WARNINGS=this,that,etc
}
This is not actually used in automake, but will be in autoconf.
* lib/Automake/ChannelDefs.pm (merge_WARNINGS): New function.
2020-09-12 Zack Weinberg <zackw@panix.com>
t/python-virtualenv.sh: Skip when versions don’t match
On some operating systems ‘python’ is Python 2.x but ‘virtualenv -ppython
will create a virtualenv that uses Python 3.x. This is a bug, but it’s
not *automake’s* bug, and should not cause t/python-virtualenv.sh to fail
.
Skip the test, instead of failing it, when the inner=outer version check
fails.
(This also has nothing to do with the main goal of this patchset, it just
annoyed me while I was testing.)
* t/python-virtualenv.sh: Skip test, rather than failing it, when
$py_version_pre != $py_version_post.
2020-09-12 Zack Weinberg <zackw@panix.com>
Consistently use ‘our’ instead of ‘use vars’.
At file scope of a file containing at most one ‘package’ declaration,
‘use vars’ is exactly equivalent to ‘our’, and the latter is preferred
starting with Perl 5.6.0, which happens to be the oldest version we
support.
(This change has nothing to do with the previous two, but I want to make
the
same change in Autoconf and that means doing it here for all the files sy
nced
from Automake.)
(I don’t know why, but this change exposed a latent bug in FileUtils.pm w
here
the last pod block in the file didn’t have a ‘=cut’ delimiter, so the cod
e
after it was considered documentation, causing ‘require FileUtils’ to fai
l.)
* lib/Automake/ChannelDefs.pm
* lib/Automake/Channels.pm
* lib/Automake/Condition.pm
* lib/Automake/Configure_ac.pm
* lib/Automake/DisjConditions.pm
* lib/Automake/FileUtils.pm

* lib/Automake/RuleDef.pm
* lib/Automake/VarDef.pm
* lib/Automake/Variable.pm
* lib/Automake/Wrap.pm
* lib/Automake/XFile.pm:
Replace all uses of ‘use vars’ with ‘our’.
* lib/Automake/FileUtils.pm:
Add missing ‘=cut’ to a pod block near the end of the file.
2020-09-12 Zack Weinberg <zackw@panix.com>
Consistently process -W(no-)error after all other warning options.
automake and aclocal were processing ‘-W(no-)error’ whenever it
appeared on the command line, which means that
‘-Werror,something-strange’ would issue a hard error, but
‘-Wsomething-strange,error’ would only issue a warning.
It is not desirable for warnings about unknown warning categories ever to
be
treated as a hard error; that leads to problems for driver scripts like
autoreconf, which would like to pass whatever -W options it got on its ow
n
command line down to all the tools and not worry about which tools unders
tand
which warning categories. Also, this sort of order dependence is confusi
ng
for humans.
Change parse_warnings to take just one option, the _complete_ list of war
ning
categories seen on the command line, and to process -Werror / -Wno-error
after
processing all other warnings options. Thus, unknown warnings categories
will
always just be a plain warning. This does mean aclocal has to stop using
parse_warnings as a Getopt::Long callback, but that’s not a big deal.
Similarly, change parse_WARNINGS to record whether ‘error’ appeared in th
e
environment variable, but not activate warnings-are-errors mode itself.
parse_warnings picks up the record and honors it, unless it’s overridden
by
the command line.
* lib/Automake/ChannelDefs.pm ($werror): New package global (not exported
).
(parse_WARNINGS): Do not call switch_warning for ‘error’ / ‘no-error’;
just toggle the value of $werror.
(parse_warnings): Do not call switch_warning immediately for
‘error’ / ‘no-error’; toggle $werror instead. Call switch_warning ‘err
or’
at the very end if $werror is true. Remove unused $OPTION argument.
* bin/automake.in: parse_warnings now takes only one argument.
* bin/aclocal.in: Call parse_warnings after parse_options instead of
using it as a parse_options callback.
2020-09-11 Zack Weinberg <zackw@panix.com>
Sync ChannelDefs.pm from autoconf.
ChannelDefs.pm *ought* to be kept in sync between automake and autoconf,
because it defines the set of valid -W options, and autoreconf assumes
that it can pass arbitrary -W options to all of the tools it invokes.
However, it isn’t covered by either project’s ‘make fetch’ and it hasn’t
actually *been* in sync for more than 17 years.
This patch manually brings over all of the changes made on the autoconf s
ide.
Most importantly, there is a new warnings channel ‘cross’, for warnings
related to cross-compilation. Also, the ‘usage’ function now *returns*
the text to be put into a usage message, instead of printing it itself.
(This is necessary on autoconf’s side.)
* lib/Automake/ChannelDefs.pm: Sync from autoconf.
(cross): New warnings channel.
(portability-recursive): Document.
(usage): Now returns the text to be printed, instead of printing it.
(parse_warnings): Second argument may now be a list.
2020-09-05 Zack Weinberg <zackw@panix.com>
automake: be robust against directories containing ().
This change fixes https://bugs.gnu.org/14196.
* m4/missing.m4 (AM_MISSING_HAS_RUN): always quote the
invocation (not just if $am_aux_dir contains space or tab), in
case $am_aux_dir contains () or other metachars not rejected by
AM_SANITY_CHECK; quoting with '...' suggested by Jim Meyering.
* t/man6.sh (HELP2MAN): adjust grep since missing value
is quoted now.
* t/am-missing-prog.sh: likewise.
2020-09-04 Issam E. Maghni <issam.e.maghni@mailbox.org>

* bin/aclocal.in: use warnings instead of #!...-w;
consistent ordering of basic "use" directives,
then BEGIN block,
then standard modules in ASCII order,
then Automake:: modules (not sort),
finally use vars.
Also sort @ISA lists and use qw(...) in ASCII order.

port XFile locking to OpenIndiana
I observed this problem on an NFS filesystem on an OpenIndiana
host (5.11 illumos-dde7ba523f i386). fcntl (fd, F_SETLK, ...)
failed with errno == EINVAL, which POSIX allows for files that
do not support locking.

2020-06-06 Karl Berry <karl@freefriends.org>
tests: support -fno-common in vala-mix2 test.
This change fixes https://bugs.gnu.org/41726.
* t/vala-mix2.sh: extern in .h, initialization in .c.
GCC 10 defaults to -fno-common.
2020-06-06 Karl Berry <karl@freefriends.org>
automake: support AM_TESTSUITE_SUMMARY_HEADER override.
This change handles https://bugs.gnu.org/11745.
* lib/am/check.am (AM_TESTSUITE_SUMMARY_HEADER): new variable.
Default value is " for $(PACKAGE_STRING)", including quotes,
to keep the default output the same.
($(TEST_SUITE_LOG)): use it, unquoted.
* doc/automake.texi (Scripts-based Testsuites): document it.
* NEWS: mention it.

* NEWS: it seems the TAR envvar was never mentioned in NEWS;
add it, back for 1.11.3 when it was apparently implemented.
* doc/automake.texi: consistently use "---" instead of " --".
2020-05-25 Karl Berry <karl@freefriends.org>
docs: TAR envvar overrides "tar" for make dist.
This change finishes https://bugs.gnu.org/9822.
* doc/automake.texi (Basics of Distribution): mention that
environment variable TAR overrides "tar".
2020-05-17 Karl Berry <karl@freefriends.org>

2020-05-10 Karl Berry <karl@freefriends.org>
automake: remove unused Automake::FileUtils::up_to_date_p function.
Per thread at:
https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/automake-patches/2020-04/msg00000.html
>
especially:
https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/automake-patches/2020-05/msg00003.html
* lib/Automake/FileUtils.pm (up_to_date_p): remove.
Nothing in Automake itself uses this. It is used in Autoconf's
autom4te utility, but Autoconf has its own copy, and the duplication
was impeding auto4mte development, as discussed in the thread above.
(While here, insert missing =over/=back to placate pod2text.)
* NEWS (Miscellanous changes): note this.
2020-05-07 Karl Berry <karl@freefriends.org>
docs: make dist implies make dvi.
This change handles https://bugs.gnu.org/7994.
* doc/automake.texi (Preparing Distributions): make distcheck
runs make dvi.
(Auxiliary Programs) <texinfo.tex>: mention
that make dist runs make dvi, and therefore a TeX system is
required when Texinfo sources are present. Add @cmindex entries
for all auxiliary programs while we're here.

tests: TeX system required for two more tests.
* t/instdir-no-empty.sh (required): makeinfo tex texi2dvi dvips.
* t/txinfo-bsd-make-recurs.sh (required): likewise.
