Patch for bug in Rakefile with Pathname.glob being called on Array

Reported by Joey B | April 8th, 2008 @ 10:21 PM

I couldn't get a rake install to fly on a fresh pull of dm-core because my Ruby 1.8.5 on Mac OS 10.4 was complaining that Pathname.glob should not be called on an Array (on line 49 ... during the building of the PACKAGE_FILES list).

After inspecting the Ruby docs, it looks as though Pathname.glob is supposed to be called on a String (not an Array).

So, I created a tiny patch so that Pathname.glob is called on each element of the Array via a collect and then the resulting Array of Strings and Arrays is flattened ... everything else stays the same.

My bottom line: the rake install now succeeds for me.

If other people don't see the problem, maybe I'm crazy. It seems like a problem that others should have experienced before me? The bug that I'm fixing with this patch (if it is a bug) was introduced more than a month ago (pre-git)...
