Subject Re: [ALL] Distributing an ide version
Date Thu, 04 Aug 2005 03:06:55 GMT
Not sure why we have two downloads anyway. The src is usually
relatively small compared to the binary; is it to just to avoid
confusing the user?

Problem with Brett's 3-download approach is that when we say src we
don't mean src, we mean buildable. Just having the src in a jar
doesn't help somebody to build it. Still, I like that Maven will start
distributing javadoc and src too; helps heavily with my vague wish to
have all the versioned javadoc online.

I long since stopped using either the src or the binary download. I
get all my commons jars from either ibiblio or my local maven
repository, and I use the online javadoc. :)
