Subject Re: Camel 2.8.2 - Reason for the many backports?
Date Thu, 22 Sep 2011 16:44:42 GMT

I gave the DoMerges tool a try and it worked fine.

However as my python script causes some UTF-8 error after
the merge is done, the DoMerges tool breaks
after one merge.

I tried downloading the latest file from the official
source but it fails as well.
I guess I need to find an older file that dont fail at the end.

If anyone got a .py file working, then feel free to attach on a mail
and send to me, or this @dev.
