#1511 closed enhancement (fixed)

Support for `files' form in the "toplevel" of egg description files

Component: build system Version: 5.0.0rc1
Keywords: egg format, uri meta-file, files Cc:
Estimated difficulty:


.meta files support a files form with a list of files that should be cached by henrietta-cache (use case: some egg repositories contain stuff that are not related to eggs -- e.g., tarballs (SRFIs -- why? no clue), PDF documentation, glue code for other implementations etc.). henrietta-cache uses the files form to determine what to cache.

As far as I can tell, the egg description file doesn't support a files form. I think it would be nice to support this, so that we can just use (uri meta-file ...file.egg) in .release-info files to specify which files to cache.

Without this, files not necessary for the installation of eggs will be cached and downloaded by chicken-install but not used.
