Description Raymond Mancy 2012-06-08 02:49:07 EDT
Description of problem:

It would be nice if the '--publish' option to build did not have to result in an output path that contained the productnumber. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1.publican build --publish --langs en-US --formats html
Actual results:

Expected results:

To have an option where <productnumber> is not necessarily included.

Additional info:

It seems that somewhere along the line someone decided it would be useful to be able to build the SRPM without the version number (although perhaps they didn't think it was a good idea as they called it --short_sighted).

Something similar in this situation would be nice. Perhaps --needs_glasses ?

Moving upstream

--publish is specifically for creating the layout used on the publican WebSites, is there any reason you can't just use tmp_dir to change where it builds and then grab the content from $tmp_dir/$lang/$format?
