Description

We have been asked to remove the dependency on cppunit. A first step would be to change the dependency to a build-only dependency since nothing in the release package actually uses it. Unfortunately the cppunit product has qualifiers. Is it relatively straightforward to have the only_for_build mechanism honor a qualifier matrix entry for a product?

History

#1 Updated by Lynn Garren about 5 years ago

Ack! It may require some redesign.

#2 Updated by Christopher Green about 5 years ago

  • Status changed from New to Accepted
  • Priority changed from Normal to Low

It was agreed that this is a reasonable facility to implement with low priority, but for cppunit in particular the best solution is likely to remove its use from art completely.
