Did someone like totally forget to release a tarball for: "strigi-0.7.6"
I also note that it is/was a real pain to get it from GIT because:
It is broken up into submodules but there is NO indication of this and
no real indication of which repository is the main module or that it
doesn't contain the code.
In order to checkout the modules it is necessary to have a section in
your: ".gitconfig" file that can be found only with a lot of searching
in KDE TechBase, or you have to edit the: ".gitmodules" file. Again we
appear to have the typical KDE hubris -- the presumption that users
would only be building TRUNK.
So, about an hour wasted. As someone with college training in software
engineering, these stupid mistakes are very annoying.
Note that you need Strigi >= 0.7.6 because the older versions will not
work with the current release of Clucene. Again, I had to use trial and
error to figure that out. The lack of documentation is a serious issue
since this dependency issue still applies for those that do not build
Linux (mostly) From Scratch
