We are applying this patch on Gentoo to build unittests only when going to run tests

Thanks for applying it

Hey, thanks for the patch.

The problem is that we're switching to cmake soon so this will be
obsolete in a few weeks.

We run the tests all the time and changing the workflow of the
developers (even if it's such a small change) shortly before the
switch is probably not a good idea.

This would also need changes in the build-webkit script else the build
bots will probably break.

We are not going to switch to cmake in the stable branches.
Comment 3 Pacho Ramos 2014-02-05 13:19:02 PST
Maybe would be interesting to apply it to 2.2.x branch only then (if there will be more releases)
Comment 4 Alberto Garcia 2014-02-06 01:25:34 PST
I wouldn't change that at this point for the reasons I already said, but I don't have strong arguments against fixing it in the stable branches either.

Not opposed, but this is only useful for the 2.2.x stable branch right? In 2.4 we have developer mode.
