> Bug 8807 - add Carton support to Koha
patch created from master (bd1f62137de)
steps used to create patch...
1/ install cpanm, (2 methods)
$ sudo cpan App::cpanminus or...
$ curl -L http://cpanmin.us | perl - --sudo App::cpanminus
2/ install carton
$ sudo cpanm carton
3/ install needed perl modules (and create a carton.lock file)
$ cd koha.git
$ carton install
Should this bug be "needs signoff?"
Can someone weigh in if this can be closed? No activity since 2012 (no answer to Owens question 2014).
This would be interesting if we had a script to generate the carton files. Because we cannot ditch our current model as it is used for generating the Debian packages.
I like the idea overall, but this bug should probably be closed until someone can work on a complete solution.
Probably related => bug 19735 (carton uses the cpanfile)
