[rabbitmq-discuss] Plugin authors: the rabbitmq-public-umbrella build system just changed in quite a major way

(but it's an improvement, I promise!)
I just merged a rewrite of the Makefiles provided by
rabbitmq-public-umbrella that's been under development for a while. The
major benefits of the rewrite are:
* Proper inter-plugin dependency management - typing "make" in one
plugin will make sure all the dependent plugins are up to date first.
* No use of recursive make, so "make -j" works.
* Building and versioning of the apps some plugins depend on (e.g.
Mochiweb, Webmachine) is cleaner and more explicit respectively.
The downside is: if your plugin Makefile uses the
rabbitmq-public-umbrella includes, it will need some attention.
The new system has much better documentation than the old one, please read:
and / or ask here...
