At last, ede2 module is directed by autoconf from now on. I just completed configure.in file (including all prerequisites for that) so typical edelib " ./autogen.sh && jam && jam install" recepie will do the magic.
Some docs are updated too, precisely
README.alpha so interested
parties can read something useful on how to compile the current
code. And yes, it is included as part of manual building process
and you will get "Readme First" at the start page.
Only thing that itches me currently are some m4 scripts
duplication between edelib and ede. For example, ede2 now uses
jam.m4, libxpm.m4 and xlib.m4 scripts from edelib and would be nice
if they could be shared somehow. Since edelib and ede2 are separate
modules, the only solution I'm seeing now is creating an another
(e.g. m4-macros) module. Now, the only "glitch" is that you will
have to download it separately and put in ede2 and edelib
directories; hm... reminds me to the GNOME way. After a few seconds
of thinking, better to keep them duplicate :P
