Subject Re: [general] Do we need to support Ant based builds?
Date Sat, 25 Sep 2004 00:10:15 GMT
Yep, and under gump there is a set up to hijack all the 
versions :)

Remove under gump and you go back to having this behaviour.

We don't necessarily need gump to do nightly builds however - it really 
is just a matter of maven jar:deploy-snapshot run regularly. The trick 
is keeping it consistent with the ant-based nightlies, having somewhere 
to run it, and when to run it - do you really need nightlies on commons 
components, or should it be triggered by commits?
