Spec Reference:


When building any osmocom project (from libosmocore on) the make output is interspersed with many instances of

usage: bumpversion [-h] [--config-file FILE] [--verbose] [--list]
                   [--allow-dirty] [--parse REGEX] [--serialize FORMAT]
                   [--search SEARCH] [--replace REPLACE]
                   [--current-version VERSION] [--dry-run] --new-version
                   VERSION [--commit | --no-commit] [--tag | --no-tag]
                   [--tag-name TAG_NAME] [--message COMMIT_MSG]
                   part [file [file ...]]
bumpversion: error: the following arguments are required: --new-version, part

What is going on here? I'm not tagging a new release or bumping any versions. I'm just doing a normal build, and that should neither need bumpversion, nor call it in a way that is a syntax violation that spews help texts to stdout/stderr.

This entire bumpversion story is going on for months now. I had to create Debian packages for it to fix builds. Now this. Honestly, I'm very close to reverting "Change-Id: I790ceb958195b9f6cbabfe8c977dc30e2bd7414b" and related follow-up commits.

Local environment:

bumpversion: v0.5.3 (using Python v3.5.4)

#2 Updated by msuraev over 1 year ago

The debian package for bumpversion are not needed anymore as of libosmocore 98f6482ec7eb603b17e5a99fb92d28c17fcf61e9.
The reason for those error messages is that we call bumpversion outside of release target to populate variables (aither make does not allow such calls from inside the target or I did not manage to find a way to do it). Those error messages are harmless (although they might indicate that smth is wrong with the release version/tags) but unnecessary and confusing so the patch to suppress them is available for 2 weeks already.
