Hi! I love flatbuffers, to start with.
But, i also love VCPKG, and before creating my own portfile to keep flatbuffers at head / recent revisions i want to check
I am a heavy UNION user, and i am in need of https://github.com/google/flatbuffers/commit/f9277e691dd10e42a999bba683db5df7d49226d6#diff-8f7f862c058e6e45a1abea4d04b48691 (Fixed GenerateText not handling vectors of unions. )
So my question is: will a new version be released soon? (creating a local portfile is not THAT big of a deal, but maintaining it is)
If you need any help in fixing bugs to get to release , i am happy to pitch in if you want.
About pinning commits, Im not sure what you mean.
But looking at the history of https://github.com/microsoft/vcpkg/commits/5ef8bb9abc0f6a9551ac48006fc04b9d91cc5716/ports/flatbuffers
I dont see non release versions.
Having said that, i think updating the https://github.com/microsoft/vcpkg/blob/5ef8bb9abc0f6a9551ac48006fc04b9d91cc5716/ports/flatbuffers/portfile.cmake with a later commit should work?
But i dont think the port on vcpkg should host non release sourcetree versions ;) So i will create my own portfile.
Thx for the quick reply.
