Subject Re[5]: The old immutable properties trick
Date Mon, 20 May 2002 11:13:50 GMT
Has anything been decided about this yet? What are the latest thoughts?
(I've read http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?t=102102515700002&r=1&w=2 but
nothing seems to have been posted for a while..)

Cheers
-Geoff

any properties defined by the user to have the users choice of read-only or
writeable. That only fair isn't it?

>If required you could even have an attribute required in the buildfile
itself to allow overriding, defaulting to false for backwards compatability.

<project name="myProj" property-override="true">

see fit to.
