Great idea. I don't know much about cpack, but sounds pretty useful.
I feel bad that we don't have a Windows setup .exe for each CVS Beta update, but it is a simple practical matter for me. I work on-board, usually at anchor
, and often (mostly) with marginal 5 mile Wifi
connections. CVS checkins are just manageable, but 8 MB FTP uploads of the Windows setup .exe are regularly impossible. Jerry, Will, and I are working to improve this situation by enabling a login shell for me to the Beta host, so that I can do partial uploads with retries using rsync. Maybe this will help.
Still waiting for Sourceforge $$ donations to happen, so that I can fund a wireless network upgrade for the bigdumboat.....
Meanwhile, lets look at cpack, and maybe get a volunteer to take over building, alpha testing, and uploading the Windows setup .exe independently at each CVS update.
btw: Have you tested the new API gps
library support added recently? I have no good gpsd configuration just now....
