Defining a pattern for Julia tarball directory


#1

Hi guys!

Is it possible to define a pattern for the Julia tarball directory? For example, Julia v0.6.2 is unpacked to ./julia-0.6.2 whereas Julia v0.6.3 is unpacked to ./julia. Hence, I need to fine tune the .spec file for farm building every time this happen.

It is not a big deal, but can we define a pattern for it?

I agree we should automate this. But even without this, a clear policy decision could be enough. @ararslan I guess it depends on you since you have to rename the directories manually?

Should be enough to change julia-$(JULIA_COMMIT) in the Makefile to use whatever the Make variable has the full version number.
