2016-07-29Use xz to compress the source tarball.Gerald Combs1-2/+2
Compress the source tarball using xz instead of bzip2. Other open source projects (including many of our dependencies) have been using xz for a while so hopefully this won't be too much of a shock. Remove the patch-bzip2 Autotools target while we're here.

2014-02-07Replace "svn" with "git" all over the place.Gerald Combs1-1/+1
Rename "SVNPATH" to "GITBRANCH" since that seems more appropriate. Rename "svnversion.h" to "version.h" as Evan suggested. Update some URLs. In make-version.pl, make sure we don't set an improper upstream branch name. Use the number of commits + short hash from `git describe` for package names by default.
