Subject [jira] [Created] (CB-10845) Location permission lost for Windows Phone 8.1

Steffen Schaffert created CB-10845:

             Summary: Location permission lost for Windows Phone 8.1
                 Key: CB-10845
             Project: Apache Cordova
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Plugin Geolocation, Windows
         Environment: Windows Phone 8.1
            Reporter: Steffen Schaffert

After updating to the latest Cordova versions (cordova-cli 6.0.0, cordova-windows 4.3.1, cordova-plugin-geolocation
2.1.0), the location capability is missing from the appxmanifest file.

In the platforms/windows folder, the file "" contains the following
  <Capability Name="internetClient" />
  <DeviceCapability Name="location" />

The file "", which seems to be relevant when building for the ARM
platform, is missing the location entry:
  <Capability Name="internetClientServer" />

I don't know whether this is a bug in the geolocation plugin (which should add the permission)
or in the windows platform. I was able to fix the problem for me by extending the plugin.xml
of the geolocation plugin and adding:

<config-file target="" parent="/Package/Capabilities">
    <DeviceCapability Name="location" />

This seems to be a bug because the existing extra with target="package.appxmanifest" works
for the file but not for
