Argh! These packages will be the end of me, yet.
You're O.K. Kevin.
Can anyone tell me what I should put into the Makefile for wp/tpu to
fix this? Right now it simply contains "REQUIRES =". As you might
guess, it does not require anything. I thought Steve had edited this
line. I don't think I did, but I might have. If I messed it up, sorry!
Should it be "REQUIRES = "()"" or something else?
The problem was in the package-info template file package-info.in.
is correct for the Makefile.
is correct for the package-info.in file -- the `REQUIRES' token gets
substituted with the contents of the right side of the equals sign in
the Makefile. When `REQUIRES' is the empty string, it becomes
`requires ()' which is interpreted as `require nil'.
The current package-get-base file has everything correct:
