Subject Re: XMLCatalog.java -- patch breaks bootstrap.bat Yikes!
Date Fri, 24 May 2002 21:46:14 GMT
Yikes!  I was concerned about that when I saw the additional imports, but
because I have Xalan in my bootstrap classpath it worked I guess.

I +1'd including Xalan as its such a fundamental piece to things like
<junitreport> and <xslt> - but I think at least one committer veto'd it?  I
still support including it.

So, we must make a decsion soon... either we revert Craeg's patch or we
include Xalan.
