No, it is the version of Subversion of the user running the buildjars  
target from the source distribution that matters, not the person  
packaging the release. The manifest is generated by Ant at the time  
that the buildjars target is run, not when the source distribution is  

So, in this case, yes, the version of Subversion that you are running  
is what makes the difference, and if you upgraded your Subversion to  
1.2.0 or later, you would be able to run the buildjars target as well  
as if you had applied the patch that I sent.
