1. Another build requirement change: the doxygen.README file still
refers to TeTeX, which was replaced recently with TeX Live. But,
installing a basic TeX setup alone isn't enough. To build the PDF
manual, you need the optional texlive-collection-fontutils package for
epstopdf, and texlive-collection-latexextra for float.sty. There's no
need to mention any other packages. Installing those two into a stock
Cygwin install will drag in enough of the remaining TeX stuff to build
2. /usr/share/doc/doxygen/latex should be removed, in favor of a .../pdf
subdirectory. I don't see a reason to ship source and intermediate
build files here, expecting the user to build the docs. What's wanted
here is a PDF of the LaTeX *output*.
3. I'd rather see your first version be 1.8.2-1 instead. Why start with
a version two bug fix releases back?
Nits aside, I can't withhold a GTG recommendation, since your packages
are no worse off than mine were, and those were apparently still useful
to people. :)
Something to pursue later, having no effect on GTG status:
There's a bogus test in Doxygen's configure script, where it goes
looking for dot(1) from GraphViz. It does a weak check for it in a few
common locations, and yells if it isn't there. dot(1) being a filter,
there isn't a huge penalty for using the native Windows version, which
of course doesn't get installed in any of those locations. It would be
nice to either 1) send upstream a test using the PATH instead of a
hardcoded list; or 2) adopt Yaakov's GraphViz package:
Option 1 is sufficient, but option 2 means you can make graphviz a
dependency of your doxygen package, so everyone gets it automatically.
