devx merged into main f.s.

July 25, 2015 — BarryK
I have modified my Quirky build system, also known as woofQ, to optionally merge the 'devx' into the main filesystem.
That is, there will no longer be a devx PET as all of the files needed for compiling, git, svn, etc., are already in the main build of Quirky.

For me, this is convenient, as I always install the 'devx' PET anyway. Now, the proposed "Appril" app-developer build of Quirky is up-front for developing Linux and Android applications, so I want everything built-in ready-to-go out-of-the-box.

woofQ has a file 'build-choices', with a new variable BUILD_CHOICE_MERGE_DEVX, which, when set to "yes', will cause the merge to occur.
This required modifications to '2createpackages' and '3builddistro'.

The proposed "Appril" build is looking good. It is going to be big though, very big.


The templates in 'packages-templates' needed major overhaul also.
