* Petition to remove hidden flag from cmake-minimal package

Could cmake-minimal be made publicly available as a version of cmake 
without the documentation dependencies?  I believe the only thing 
preventing this is the hidden flag inherited from cmake-bootstrap.

Technically, yes, but why?  What's the use case you have in mind?

I am using it with pack and the minimal requirement the size down but 
also prevents a large number of dependencies from being pulled in when 
building from source.  I attached the dependency graphviz dot to 
illustrate, the resulting png is roughly 7mb.  This is only for cmake.

I assume as "guix pack cmake other-package ..."?
This seems a valid use case, although there is a
case to be made to only make the ‘fully capable’
packages visible.

In any case, you can work around this with

  guix pack -e '(@ (gnu packages cmake) cmake-minimal)' other-package ...

This works for any exported package.

Greetings,
Maxime.

Hi Tom,

The latter is true and makes sense to me, but note that both take about
the same amount of space:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
$ guix size $(guix build -e '(@@ (gnu packages cmake) cmake-minimal)')|tail -1
total: 215.1 MiB
$ guix size cmake | tail -1
total: 217.8 MiB
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

The two are functionally equivalent (same run-time dependencies), which
I guess is the reason why ‘cmake-minimal’ isn’t public, unlike other
“-minimal” variants.

That is fair.  Thank you,
