Dear all,

after the collaboration meeting last week, I would like to make the request that all EPICS modules (e.g. asyn, stream, snmp, ....)
include the lines

> -include $(TOP)/../RELEASE.local
> -include $(TOP)/../RELEASE.$(EPICS_HOST_ARCH).local
> -include $(TOP)/configure/RELEASE.local

in their configure/RELEASE file. These lines were introduced in base 7 and from my point of view this simplifies building EPICS via scripts! Also I agree with Dirk Zimoch, who mentioned during the meeting, that configure/RELEASE is not the best place to store dependencies to specific versions. In addition, such a line simplifies the collaborative work on a package via git, as you do not need to modify configure/RELEASE for your environment anymore. Thus creating merge/pull requests only contain changes to source files and no longer changes to the environment configuration. The file 'configure/RELEASE.local' should be included in the .gitignore file, of course.

Best regards,
Florian
