Imagine the following...
Someone comes to IRC or the forums and starts complaining (s)he got a data abort at 0xa4b425C8 with the most recent build. You want to know where the abort happend and contact the one whos build server was used to build this built.
Finally you catched him om IRC but a new commit has been made and the file isn't valid anymore. So you tell the user to upgrade the newest build again and everything starts over again.
I thinks this is a PITA for the user, the one who wants to figure out whats wrong and the build server owner.

Wouldn't it be better, when would include all map files in e.g. ./rockbox/maps to that you can tell the user "Ok, go to .rockbox/maps on your DAP and".

Once could say that the new maps directory might confuse a lot of rockbox users but i doubt they are interested in anything that is in .rockbox as long as their themes and wpses are ok.

Firstly i wanted to make that a patch but made my head hurt. So it's only a request ;)
Hope you like it.
This task depends upon

JdGordon just pointed me to which is the patch for this request.

I'm always too slow :-(

uhm, isn't "make mapzip" already fine enough?
Comment by Alexander Papst (DerPapst) - Tuesday, 31 July 2007, 15:36 GMT
It is. Haven't noticed that it is already there. Sorry for that.

But i was more concerend that the map files aren't available for the user/supporter which you have changed at least for the daily builds one hour ago or so.

So i think this task can now be closed (my contribution to the FS cleanup week :-P)
