Subject RE: Setting config.json values
Date Thu, 26 Mar 2015 18:35:02 GMT
It's possible i broke it:

try something from before this?

i'd suggest a bisect

specifically, find the last version where the command worked;
then try only upgrading lib, to the version+1 and see if it worked, if so, it's probably in

i'd be really embarrassed if it's my fault.

i've been under the weather this week, so i'm catching up on mail/offering spot advice and
giving up.

Subject: Re: Setting config.json values

The help still says CONFIG is an option:
cordova create <PATH> [ID [NAME [CONFIG]]] [options] [PLATFORM...]

and config handling seems to still be there..

.. so I think it's a bug. Two things here:
1. this bug
2. PLATFORM is not defined in the create help (I know it should be
obvious, but...)
