Bug 4743 asks us to add RunChandler scripts to the end user version of
Chandler. This means we also need to include python executable and
RunPython script. We've already added tools directory to the end user
Since it seems the end user version is becoming more and more like the
developer version I think we should again consider dropping the
developer version and just adding all we want in the end user version,
making it the one and only Chandler distribution.
So it seems we need at least:
added in the end user distribution.
I think we should also add:
pylint, pychecker, epydoc?
Note that all of these are needed/used by some of the scripts in tools/.
With the end user version people would have the option of editing
RunChandler to remove -O argument for Python, which would get them a bit
more debugging information than with what comes out of the box.
The only thing people would miss are the debug symbols built into the
components that were native code (C/C++). My opinion is that people who
want this should just build Python etc. themselves, i.e. doing a
Chandler full build.
Going with one distribution per platform would have several advantages:
* Simplify it for the people who come to download Chandler
* Simplify it for developers, less need to guess what build/which
* Reduce manifest files from 6 to 3 - less work and possibilities of
* Reduce work needed by Tinderbox clients - Tbox clients cycle faster
* Less space needed on download servers
