Subject RE: "Replace" ANT task overwrites read-only files
Date Tue, 02 Nov 2010 14:28:19 GMT
Hi Antoine,

thanks for your feedback.
Yes, I would like to open a bug report for this <replace> issue (Ant should
NOT perform replace on read-only files by default, while the current version
does overwrite the read-only files).

Should I open the bug directly (by registering on
https://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/, then filing the bug report), or should
we follow an alternative way?
Thanks in advance and best regards,

Marco

Hello Marco,

this has been done in SVN (yet unreleased) but not for the replace task.

the bug report  https://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=49261 
mentioned mainly the copy task.

Do you want to open a bug report ?

Regards,

Antoine
