#420 closed defect (wontfix)

indirectly loaded extension to statically linked extension-modules may still be loaded dynamically

Reported by: felix winkelmann Owned by: felix winkelmann
Priority: major Milestone: 4.9.0
Component: core libraries Version: 4.6.x
Keywords: Cc:
Estimated difficulty:


It might be helpful to internally mark explicitly statically linked extension in an executable (-static-extension) as "pre-loaded", for example by adding them to ##sys#loaded-extensions before loading require'd extensions.

Resolution: wontfix
Status: newclosed

At T-DOSE we have come to the conclusion that any effort for statically linkable eggs will be silently dropped. It is too much of a hassle to get this working, the user interface is awkward, and egg-authors don't test static linking in most cases. Since it is easier to just use -deploy if self-contained binaries are desired this feature will be phased out.
