09:58 nine Just a random thought regarding generated Makefiles: as someone who can actually write Makefiles from scratch, I've always been bothered, when I need a fix in a Makefile, know how to do it but the whole thing was generated and I had no idea how to tell the generator what I need.
10:02 DrForr Do we leave breadcrumbs in the autogenerated files?
10:04 nine Well what little infrastructure we currently have doesn't generate Makefiles fully but only replaces variables in a Makefile.in. So we don't actually have the problem right now.
10:04 nine Just thought, I should mention it for any future discussion about where we want to go.
10:04 nine Btw. it's basically the same issue as with ORMs and SQL.
10:06 DrForr Yeah, tracing that stuff back can be a pain; I was just wondering idly if we left "Don't modify anything before this marker" type comments that would help.
10:29 moritz adding markers where stuff comes from shouldn't be too hard
10:29 moritz we have basically a preamble written by Configure.pl, a part from Makefile-common.in and one from Makefile-$backend.in
14:00 ugexe maybe something that could be invoked like `run 'make', :env( from-json('.generated-build-env'.IO.slurp).hash );`
14:01 ugexe or be able to generate a static makefile from something like that
