"""This module defines the download_config_files rule.
This allows external clients to get the configuration files that our custom
Bazel rules for repos like Freetype depend on.
Clients don't have to use this rule if they build those libraries their own
way or want to use their own custom configurations.
Skia doesn't use this rule directly, instead it uses a local_repository rule
to make those configs available while still being defined in the same repo.
Clients cannot use local_repository to refer to something in the Skia source
code though, thus the need for a way for them to get those independently.
TODO(kjlubick) Make this more hermetic by having a place to download (and verify)
the files from that is more robust.

# This will create one or more files in the [bazel sandbox]/external/[name] folder.

# or at least download from, however
# the latter only lets one download base64-encoded files and I would prefer
# not to depend on something like
url = "{}/{}".format(repo_ctx.attr.skia_revision, src)
