Sounds good. Running a script to call autoreconf would be no easier than eunning autoreconf.

  PETSc releases should point to moab releases. But PETSc-dev should point to moab-dev

   Do you have scripts/tools to run the "autoreconf" easily that we can call?

Pass the URL directly? The current code is a bit of mess. For one - I don't know why the GNUPackage requires URLs to be split up as such: >>>>> self.downloadpath = 'http://ftp.mcs.anl.gov/pub/fathom/' self.downloadname = 'moab' self.downloadfilename = 'moab' self.downloadversion = 'nightly' self.downloadext = 'tar.gz' <<<< But ignoring this we currently have stuff like the following - where the urls are attempted in the sequence specified. If the first one fails - try the next one: >>>>> self.download = ['https://elemental.googlecode.com/files/elemental-0.79-p1.tgz', 'http://ftp.mcs.anl.gov/pub/petsc/externalpackages/elemental-0.79-p1.tgz'] <<<<<< with [potential support] for multiple protocols. - as retrieval.py lists: [we also support urls of type file://path] >>> # Fix parsing for nonstandard schemes urlparse.uses_netloc.extend(['bk', 'ssh', 'svn']) <<<< And currently this default can be overwriten by user with: --download-package=url In this context we should not have a separate stuff for git [self.giturls/self.gitcommit]. It should be rolled into the above common url notation. [note: the current git code ignores user specified --download-package=url - and just goes ahead and does the git stuff specified in package.py] Somehow we have to add in 'prereqisites' to the 'repo' type urls in the above scheme. And then perhaps retrieval.py can be asked to ignore repo-urls with some option like '--url-git=no' Also - the repo urls need better support wrt: 'getting updates & rebuilding package'. Current code for this is tarball centric [with some bad behavior - like not detecting a changed url etc..] Satish
