This is a project/proposal to self-host all (most anyways) libraries Blender links to (png, jpg, ...).
This makes Blender less dependent on external hosting solutions. It also makes it easy to comply to GPL source code request.
- Host all packages in the svn
- make deps to support that
- Create a new make source_archive_complete to include those
- make deps from the downloaded full package to also work with the local packages
Note: make source_archive_complete should create the following compressed file structure:
$ tar -Jtvf blender-with-libraries-2.92.0.tar.xz
//blender_2.92.0/ //blender_2.92.0/source/blender/blenkernel (...) //packages/ //packages/tiff-4.1.0.tar.gz (...)
