Configuration of the installed file locations
In Debian, we have a process to test the build of all packages so that a repeat build produces identical binaries. https://reproducible-builds.org/
xrstools is failing these tests, primarily because the source code uses code like:
in multiple locations.
I am currently having to patch each of these to refer to a single basepath matching the final installation directory for the package:
It would be useful if XRSTools could set the expected base path once and then pick up that path each time it needs to set such a path. Then Debian would be able to set an alternative in just one place.
This patch isn't usable upstream directly, however, there are other locations within the codebase where reference is made to
__file__ to build paths. It would be useful if all such occurrences used a single configurable base path instead of trying to use
