Hey sirex,

Embedding "make-esque" functionality into Fabric would be quite an
undertaking, e.g. dependency chain analysis, specific
language/compiler toolchain support, etc.

Perhaps it would be simpler to just call out into whatever build
system that you enjoy working with?

After spending some time using SCons <http://www.scons.org/>, Rake
<http://rake.rubyforge.org/> and Waf <http://code.google.com/p/waf/>,
I have found myself still preferring Makefiles.

Having said that, I've also created a yet-another-package-management-system:

I wonder if it would be worthwhile to make it generic and usable
within Fabric directly — which should provide the features you're
looking for, along with going some ways towards negating the need for


All the best, tav
