[yast-devel] Rake tasks for Yast
Hi,

as it was discussed here last week, ruby ecosystem provides a build tool
called Rake [1].
Rake makes use of 'tasks' which define in standard Ruby syntax and Rake
DSL various specific goals, e.g.
running the tests, metrics or creating the ruby gem or rpm package.

To easily share the tasks' code between yast modules it would be good to
have a single
repository/package/gem with all common tasks, including constants and
helper methods. I would
propose to call it yast-rake-tasks , repository skeleton draft is
available here [2] . The first tasks
for tests and metricstogether with updated README file will follow soon.

We have been using such approach with webyastalready [3] and it
provedvery useful.
There is an another repo providingpackaging tasks available here [4] .
Any comments and suggestions are welcome.

Vlado
