Subject RE: Log4J date in JAR file name
Date Fri, 01 Feb 2002 14:44:27 GMT

Personally, I'd like to see a "checkpoint" nightly build which is built with exactly the jars
in lib/, and then a separate "bleeding-edge" build.... There have been several occasions where
we've wanted to switch to a nightly but had to rebuild ourselves because we're locked to log4j-1.1.3.
  I'd be happy to help set this up if you can point me in the right direction.

What you get with the builds that are posted is a consistent set of jars
and you can look at the build log to verify that that this is in fact the
case.

There certainly are other configurations that make sense for people.  One
of the most obvious is the milestone build (alphas ant the like).  This
just happens to be something that I build anyway and make available in case
somebody else finds it useful.  If others feel like posting other
configurations, they are certainly welcome to.
