Not sure if I’m supposed to file a bug report for this or not, but the issue reporting on Github said I should post here if I’m unsure.
I’m trying to edit the default Formula for HAProxy (haproxy.rb) because I need to add extra arguments to be sent to HAProxy’s Makefile. However, no matter what changes I make to the ‘install’ method in haproxy.rb, ‘brew install haproxy’ behaves the exact same way. I tried fully deleting the ‘install’ method and it still didn’t affect how ‘brew install haproxy’ ran. This makes me think that Homebrew is completely ignoring the custom install method within haproxy.rb.
I know that haproxy.rb is being used, because when I edit the 'plist_options :manual => ’ line, my changes appear when I run ‘brew install haproxy’. I’ve tried running ‘brew install --debug --verbose haproxy’, but it didn’t give any indication that the custom install method had been run at all. I’ve tried literally just changing the install method to
and nothing has appeared in the output.
How is it possible that the custom install method isn’t being used? Is there anything I’m missing?
