#1501: g.extension fails when addons directory doesn't exists
 Reporter:  martinl      |       Owner:  hamish

 Priority:  major        |   Milestone:  6.5.0

Comment(by hamish):


 fixed in r49451,2.
 fwiw i.points.auto is an awkward test for it as it doesn't use the
 standard parser. (one of a number of i.points improvements to be back-
 ported; i.points.auto is based on a 2004 copy of i.points)

 with an empty (or non-existent) addons dir could you try editing line 412
 of grass 6.5's g.extension to be `[ 0 -eq 1 ]` and installing a few addon
 modules? After seeing it I hope you agree it is a much cleaner way to
 organize things. If there is a technical reason not to clean that up I'd
 still like to hear what it is, as I know of none.
