Subject RE: [email] rm -r lib/*.jar
Date Fri, 26 Nov 2004 10:14:28 GMT
It's fine.   Can you also do the same trick in
jakarta-commons-sandbox/email/libs as well?   As I sent in my email to the
PMC, I thought the reason those jars are not on ibiblio is that you can't
redistribute them via a website.  But having them in CVS would be akin to
having them in a war file, correct?  You can crack open a war file and
download the jar the same way you can can go into CVS and checkout just that

But, it's not really a big deal.  It's only a problem for the nightly build
based on Ant, and as long as Gump is happy (which it should be as they are
installed as packages) then it doesn't bother me.
