Hi, I wrote to the haiku-web mailing list suggesting a official tips, question, answer and RFC/idea website for Haiku. This was to take some of the non- productive glass elevator type discussion off the main mailing lists by giving it a dedicated place.

[haiku-development] Rebuilding jam/buildtools (Jessica Hamilton)

Wed, 2014-10-29 18:45
Even though repackaging jam/binutils/gcc should be rare, the current process is extremely time consuming. First, we have to wait for the repo to be synced to GitHub, and then haikuporter then needs to clone the git repo (or download a tarball in the case of binutils currently). In the case of jam, my hack to the jam recipe was to create a buildtools.path containing path to my local git repo of buildtools in the jam folder, then add an additional URI at the top: ...

I have a separate partition dedicated to haiku source code and compilation. But to compile a whole Haiku version and to put it on a usb key to reinstall on top of my existing system partition is such a pain. So how do people who achieve intensive development ? You can configure the build system to compile directly to a native ...
