Description Shawn Wilsher :sdwilsh 2008-09-18 13:45:11 PDT
if you backout a file, the tinderboxes need to be clobbered to get rid of it, and it can cause all sorts of strange issues.  It'd be nice if it just worked.

This is thankfully simple enough.

Addressed on checkin:
Comment 5 Peter Weilbacher 2008-09-26 13:59:16 PDT
Did you really want to remove $(DIST)/dist/bin or just $(DIST)/bin?
Comment 6 David Baron :dbaron: ⌚️UTC-10 2008-09-26 14:07:50 PDT
Addressed comment 5 in since the windows builds were staying orange.
Comment 7 David Baron :dbaron: ⌚️UTC-10 2008-09-26 14:24:05 PDT
Backed out completely:

since it turned the Windows boxes (builders, unit testers) red.

Comment 9 David Baron :dbaron: ⌚️UTC-10 2008-09-26 14:36:53 PDT
I relanded with $(DIST)/bin/components in the hope that that will remove the file we need to remove right now to get Windows green again without having to poke at the Windows machines (and end up with color depth problems, etc., etc.):
Comment 10 David Baron :dbaron: ⌚️UTC-10 2008-09-30 16:34:11 PDT
Also, if we remove dist/bin, we should remove dist/ or whatever the appropriate *.app directory is.

Shawn: are you interested in investigating/fixing this, or would you rather I took it?
Comment 12 Shawn Wilsher :sdwilsh 2008-10-01 14:36:09 PDT
It might be better for someone more knowledgeable about the build system to take this.  At this point, I'd be asking you all sorts of questions to fix it... (at least to address comment 10)

I'd rather you take this ted.

Note that blowing away $DIST/bin/components is part of the problem in bug 468285.
