Subject Re: Token Filters Questions
Date Mon, 19 Jun 2006 21:20:04 GMT
I've decided to go with option three: commit empty filter files to
svn. The problem with option two is that we want to run our files past
multiple filters, each of which may or may not exist, and doing this
with if statements is extremely difficult. The problem with option one
is that I'm lazy. ;-)
