Once again we ran into an issue, where a file path under ui directory is too long and make dist target fails.
This is because we artificially limit it to 99 characters in configure.ac, to preserve compatibility with ancient versions of tar, that users may want to unpack it with.
Suggest dropping that limit even at the expense of breaking source tarball decompression for some users.
As an alternative we may provide an additional tarball for these people that contains no ui folder. The easiest way do implement this would repackage existing source tarball and not to mess with automake altogether.
- Take existing source tarball
- Unpack it
- Delete the ui subfolder
- Rename the zabbix-x.y.z folder
- Pack it with the new name and pass --format=v7 to tar
Publish this new tarball alongside the regular one on the cdn.
