Since the re-focus of the plan for how to handle this has been accomplished we have reached a point where script assisted and directed laying down of the code cannot proceed any further. From here on out we need to do things according to manual porting and of course fixing up so that it actually works with our codebase and compiler range for target platforms.
To that end this issue will serve to get the code actually building even though it isn’t hooked up to anything.
@Moonchild has been working toward this end on the aborted branch. He has made some progress which I will reland here as well as some dependancies that will also serve future porting from
m-c. Those bugs will use the
Bugzilla form but tag this issue.
Anyone else who wants to jump in can do so. I suppose since deps need to be properly checked and the code is otherwise behind build option
--enable-new-regexp we will just do this on
