Re: Building packages twice in a row

Hi all!

I agree. In texinfo I have the following problem
- upstream ships po/*.gmo
- debian patches patch the .po files to fix some translations
- debian rules touches po/texinfo.pot
- make updates the .gmo files and the rest

Now at a second build time we have changes in the binary .gmo files
which cannot be represented.

What is the preferred solution for such a case?

Sounds like a hack. What do other say?
