[PATCH v2 scdoc] Improve Makefile portability 1 year, 4 months ago

From Armaan Bhojwani to ~sircmpwn/public-inbox

This also modifies the repository structure by moving files out of src/
and include/ and into the project root. Objects are now put into the
project root instead of .build/ and the OUTDIR variable has no effect
anymore.

Uses a somewhat hacky method to deal with HOST_SCDOC that relies on GNU
make's circular dependency checking. GNU make understands out of the box
that "make ./scdoc" should build the scdoc target, however bmake
does not do this, and sees ./scdoc as a seperate target from scdoc. To
get around this, a dummy ./scdoc target is implemented, however as GNU
make sees this as "scdoc: scdoc", it triggers it's circular dependency
warning.

Tested with GNU make and bmake.

Re: retrieve mailing list stats -- was: display mailing list subscribers 1 year, 6 months ago

Everyone here is asking for different levels of list anonymity, which
makes this discussion a bit difficult to have, but re:

I simply don't see how a number of people subscribed is a privacy
issue. A simple, entirely anonymous integer accessible only by
list admins tells much less information than say server access logs that
Sourcehut keeps.

There is a difference between these two examples in my opinion - one is
purely social, and one is administrative with the potential to be social
if misimplemented. This count doesn't need to be advertised in any way,
or used as a measure of inter-project popularity. A good middle ground
could be a way for just project owners to be able to run an API call to
see how many subscribers there are. This way it isn't prominently
displayed, and requires a bit of extra effort before seeing it, although
for when you actually need it for its purely administrative uses, it is
accessible. For example, I don't know if its worth it for me to send out
announce messages to my mailing lists, what is the point if I am the

Sorry, I forgot to mention those in the original email! This should fix
issue 51 on man.sr.ht[1], and issue 341 on git.sr.ht[2] which I filed.
