Subject Re: [PATCH] Definer to allow types/tasks from the same jar to work
Date Fri, 24 May 2002 14:03:27 GMT
ok, you have convinced me it is a bug :-)
+1 to patch a fix.  wrt the actual patch that
you have provided, I will leave it to others
to make the call whether it can go in, in its
current avatar.  I am +0 on it as I have not
taken a close look at it yet and I realize
it must get in in short order, if it is gonna
make it to Beta 2.

Cheers,
Magesh
