hi all,

can you share your workflow with lxqt repositories, please? I tried to
use that "all-in-one" repo with issues.

"git pull" behaves strange there. I found that I pull some older code
than current one magically.

Yes, that's the limitation of git. It follows specific commits rather than the latest HEAD.
Git 1.7 improved this a little, but it still tracks commits only.
how do you compile all to the latest version? In old razor all was 
handled automatically because there was only one repo -> all was up to
date after one 'git pull'. Now, the build-all.sh script is really
inefficient as it runs configure all time and it does not report errors
(it just skips them).
Currently I'm doing this in the lxde-qt all-in-one repo.
git submodule update --init
git submodule foreach git checkout master
git submodule foreach git pull --rebase
Then you'll make all of them up to date. This looks a little bit stupid, though.
I'm not a git master, either. So this might not be the best way.
At least this is easier in git 1.7+ since git add a new command to do all these for you.
Or is it better to fetch all repos and build it independently?
Yes, this should be better.
The script build_all.sh is a dirty hack I'm using to compile them all from scratch since I tested on many different machines (most are virtual ones), it's boring to do all of them again and again.
According to some cmake gurus, we can create a top CMakeLists.txt in lxde-qt repo, and let it build all of the submodules, but I did not really know how to do it correctly. Earlier our friend from KDE suggested that we can try to use the kde buildsystem, but I don't have the time to try it yet. I focus on fixing the components to get a usable desktop now.

any advice would be appreciated (I'm not git master;))
