Closing because this is very old, there now appears to be documentation in several places saying how Info-gnustep.plist is generated (and I added one more), and nobody else has wanted xxxInfo.plist merged in from another directory (generally it seems better to have a consistent mechanism where the file is always found in one place).

ok it seems that the Info.plist doesn't even need to be in the AppName_RESOURCE_FILES to get used but is implicitly fetched from the current directory which seems kinda wrong that files get used which aren't referenced at all from the GNUmakefile.

i'd also like to note that the documentation (that i was able to find) doesn't explain this at all. also some documentation on GUI examples adds the info.plist to the RESOURCE_FILES although it doesn't seem neccessary

i'd still like to be able to use a Info.plist file that is not in the same directory as the GNUmakefile.

i propose being able to add the following to the GNUmakefile:

AppName_INFO_PLIST = subdir/anothersubdir/randomname.plist

gnustep-make doesn't merge XXXInfo.plist items if the file resides in a subdirectory.

i.e. if you have this line in your GNUmakefile


the info plist items won't be merged into Info-gnustep.plist because it is copied from a subdirectory although the filename is the right one

attached sample project shows the problem too
