(Nearly) full tickless operation in 3.10
the only problem with waf is that the documentation is arcane and the code even more so.
but those are problems with the autocrap too, so nothing new there.

I'm sure a similar rule could be made for waf-using packages, with similarly problematic results.

Yet, it's still necessary for Debian to include automake 1.4, 1.7, 1.9, 1.10, and 1.11, and autoconf 2.13, 2.59, 2.64, and 2.67.
If it were that easy to upgrade, I'd expect that everything would've been converted to at least automake 1.10 by now (which came out in 2006).

Yes. Some reference material.
