Subject Re: Setting config.json values
Date Thu, 26 Mar 2015 17:19:01 GMT
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...)
