Re: Bug#142705: pgi default configuration WIPES OUT whole filesystems without asking!!!


first and foremost:
you should upload immediatly a new version which comments out the
 rm -rf
command: it is waaaay too dangerous to leave that out in the wild

then, here is some discussion

I think that CLEAN=1 should mean
'clean anything that pgi-build has created in the temporary directory'
and not 'rm -rf the whole of it (including the dir itself)'

I see you have a BASETMPDIR=TMPDIR/pgi-$$ (or similar)

that is a good idea: create any data in that, and , at the end,
if CLEAN=1, delete BASETMPDIR ; and, do not touch the OUT dir
