Description Timotheus Pokorra 2014-04-01 07:31:15 UTC
this file is missing:

in http://download.mono-project.com/sources/mono/mono-3.4.0.tar.bz2

The other part of the commit https://github.com/mono/mono/commit/76d4e2ad1e7b8e19983a282e652e4266cf3fe0f6 that introduced the file, the change to the Makefile, is included though.

I don't know what change is needed to add new files to make dist.
Perhaps Microsoft.Portable.Common.targets needs to be added to EXTRA_DISTFILES in mcs/tools/xbuild/Makefile

Should be fixed by https://github.com/mono/mono/commit/c4667496bf3a82b91173c07a761d1dcbf935edf9
Comment 2 Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2014-04-01 18:20:08 UTC

I just ran into this issue. I have no problem using git but someone should really re-generate the packaged tarball because (http://download.mono-project.com/sources/mono/mono-3.4.0.tar.bz2) is still broken.

Distributions often build their packages directly from source tarballs so you're making unnecessary work for them by not fixing this.
Comment 6 Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2014-05-09 18:48:00 UTC
FYI this has been cherry picked to the 3.4 branch so the next tarball from that branch should include it.

Comment 7 Matthias Mailänder 2014-06-08 04:13:08 UTC
This is still not resolved. We can't release with a broken tarball https://build.opensuse.org/request/show/236547
Comment 8 Timotheus Pokorra 2014-06-20 01:19:03 UTC
I have now set up a nightly test build for make dist, and a test build of an RPM. This should avoid issues like this in the future.

Comment 9 Matthias Mailänder 2014-06-20 01:22:59 UTC
Good idea. Thanks.
Comment 10 Cam Tenny 2014-08-04 18:17:14 UTC
Hi - I also just ran into this. Despite it being marked resolved fixed, the tarball on the website (http://download.mono-project.com/sources/mono/mono-3.4.0.tar.bz2) has not been regenerated.
Comment 11 Timotheus Pokorra 2014-08-13 04:14:23 UTC
There is now a new tarball, for version 3.6.0, and it works fine!

Comment 12 Matthias Mailänder 2014-08-16 05:18:40 UTC
I can confirm the fix and updated https://build.opensuse.org/request/show/244929 again.
