Subject Re: [cordova-cli] vendoring the platforms instead of lazy download
Date Fri, 22 Mar 2013 20:01:08 GMT
Good question.

My intuition is saying for as long as 3.x is around we preload w/ core
plugins. We'll do as such w/ the PhoneGap distribution to minimize
pain. Once ppl are used to the tools they'll be asking for us to
default to none.

My thoughts where that we'd start that way w/ Cordova but thats open too.
