I am trying to update one of my packages in the AUR. Upstream using GNU automake/autoconf tools and has worked just fine for previous versions. This time around, the download from upstream is missing several of the mandatory files required by autoconf. I am trying to figure out the best way to deal with this.
1. I can add just create them, and distribute them with the Tarbell, and push them into src directory prior to invoking autoconf.
2. I can use the --add-missing flag, but that requires the running of autoconf multiple times (unless I am confused)
What is the best practice when files such as NEWS and README are missing?
