Subject Re: Strange behavior of 'zip'
Date Thu, 09 Dec 2004 16:05:20 GMT
Ah, I see.
This does look like a bug.

I was about to say only the date of the zip file is used for
dependency checking, but this is not the case, so any
names that are not in the filesets could be used to trigger
a new zip file when update="false".
