Subject BWC beaking GlobMapper change in trunk
Date Mon, 12 Jan 2009 13:40:56 GMT
Hi all,

by fixing https://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=46506
I've broken BWC, but can't convince myself that I should care.

Before my patch a to-patter without any * would be equinvalent to a
pattern with a * at its end, i.e. the matched glob was always
appended.  This is not documented and I think it is surprising, still
I had to fix one of Ant's own testcases (PathConvert) that relied on
the bahavior.

Do we care enough about it to add a boolean flag to globmapper,
something like appendstar="true|false" which would have to default to
true for BWC?

Stefan
