[GRASS-user] GRASS unofficial addon installation

Hi all,

What is the best way to install an "unofficial" GRASS addon i.e. one
not-hosted at the official SVN repository?

I just checked "g.extension
-d" and AFAIK what you essentially need to do in order to install a
"single" extension (i.e. not a toolbox) is to checkout the repository and
issue make & make install with the correct arguments. I.e something like

make \
    MODULE_TOPDIR=/usr/lib/grass70 \
    RUN_GISRC=/tmp/tmpXuk4Se \
    BIN=/checkout_dir/bin \
    HTMLDIR=/checkout_dir/docs/html \
    RESTDIR=/checkout_dir/docs/rest \
    MANBASEDIR=/checkout_dir/docs/man \
    SCRIPTDIR=/checkout_dir/script \
    STRINGDIR=/checkout_dir \

make \
    MODULE_TOPDIR=/usr/lib/grass70 \
    ARCH_DISTDIR=/checkout_dir \
    INST_DIR=/home/grassuser/.grass7/addons \

Is this correct? Are there any caveats that I need to know about?

with kind regards,

PS, best wishes and a happy new year to everybody :)
