Description Kevin F. Quinn 2006-08-04 02:07:50 UTC
The distribution source tarball for poppler does not include the files needed 
to run the tests; the only way I can see to obtain these files is to check them 
out of CVS.

When building the source tarball for distribution, can you also provide a 
tarball (e.g. poppler-test-0.5.3.tar.gz) of the test module (i.e. the stuff 
reachable via "cvs -d :pserver:anoncvs@cvs.freedesktop.org:/cvs/poppler co

Checking it out of CVS doesn't necessarily guarantee to give you the test data
associated with a particular version.

You could just tag the test files the same as the release, I suppose, but you
could make the same argument for the release itself - the source tarball is
redundant in the same way a test-data tarball would be.

We are not going to release the test data.
