Run and Build dependencies need review

    Details

    • Type: Bug
    • Status: Resolved
    • Priority: Trivial
    • Resolution: Won't Fix
    • Affects versions: 4.0
    • Fix versions: 5.0
    • Components: Documentation
    • Labels:
      None
    • Severity:
      Incorrect Documentation
    • Steps to reproduce:
      Hide
      Our documentation mentions a number of different external dependencies (synfig, hunspell, ffmpeg, etc), however in some cases if those dependencies are missing it is handled gracefully (ie, warning messages at build time, but no errors), whereas others it is not (stack traces and failures).

      We should remove the graceful handling, and update the documentation to make it more clear that the dependencies are *required*. Optionally, modify the graceful handling so that it prints a clear error message, and spread that handling to other modules.
