Re: Wiki merging


Hi Bryan,

problem is not that SCons is orphaned.

Problem is that wiki reports SCons and Make pages as orphaned pages. It means that no wiki page is linking to them. But Build_System page does.

That's what I don't understand. Wiki reports them as orphaned although they are not.

The SCons build system that I wrote hasn't been updated lately and we
should really just stay with one build system for now. I originally
created it to fix the problems with the current recursive make build
system, since doing a non-recursive make is rather difficult IMO. More
details can be found in the "Recursive Make Considered Harmful" paper:


The other nice thing about the SCons build system was that it supports
parallel builds on SMP systems (with multi-core processors, this can
speed up compiles quite a bit). If people are still interested in using
SCons, we can revive it pretty easily. Let me know. :)
