Subject Re: [Heads up] Change to build system in 2.1.x
Date Mon, 25 Oct 2004 22:05:49 GMT
We really gotta start thinking about our build system and gump integration.

this will make our descriptor being invalid, but since I control the 
DTDs we can change that on the other hand.

but there is something that bothers me: the above really doesn't make 
any sense. What would be a lot more useful would be something like

  <depend project="antlr" version="1.0"/>


  <depend project="antlr" timestamp="20040349"/>


  <depend project="antlr" tag="V1_0_RELEASE"/>

then it would be up to gump to give you the version you want (and we 
might indicate what versions we expose in our gump.xml description).
