Subject Re: Behavior of --copy-from
Date Sun, 17 May 2015 14:56:04 GMT
Well shoot - as a follow up - if I make a new Cordova project, lets
call it testsource2, and then copy .settings to it, and then follow up
by making a new project that uses copy-from pointing to testsource2,
the CLI isn't copying the .settings directory. That is a bug for sure,
right?
