Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubuntu-dev-tools is missing from the package, and I think it would be a nice addition to it.

Daniel Holbach (dholbach) wrote :

Maybe rename it to grab-merge - is where to get it from. It needs licensing and an author. CCing Keybuk.

What have we used for other tools in the package?

grab-merge is somewhat destructive to your current directory by default

What do you think about letting it use the current directory if it's empty but create a new one with the package's name if it isn't?

Daniel Hahler (blueyed) wrote :

I like the safety idea proposed by Siegfried.
Actually, why not create a new directory with the package name always (and exit if it exists)? This would be more consistent.

Scott Kitterman (kitterman) wrote :

There are currently two grab-merge scripts. One for MoM and one for DaD. Neither should be in this package until MoM/DaD are merged and there is only one.

Siegfried Gevatter (rainct) wrote :

MoM has been GPL'd and implementing the features from DaD in it is in progress :).

Agreed. I just suggest not adding this until that process is completed.
