PPSP-TP feedback

Tracker Review


  • the draft is too long for the 4 requirements from [rfc6972]
  • much of the included content is not directly relevant and arguably confusing
  • there is not enough separation of concern between TP and PPSP
  • technically it might be replaced with simpler alternatives (with some compromises)
  • I'm not intending to implement this in its current form
APPDIRS := $(wildcard apps/*)
## Example hack to filter one out:
## APPDIRS := $(filter-out apps/fooapp, $(APPDIRS))
$(foreach appdir,$(APPDIRS),$(MAKE) -C $(appdir) $(1) ;)
