Subject Re: Metadata handling (was "Release planning")
Date Tue, 27 Jul 2010 04:37:41 GMT
I have attached a 'revised' patch 
to Jira-242.

Ethan, you will have to tell me exactly why you are not able to commit it, 
if you are still not able to do so, so that I can fix the svn diff patch on 
the 'metadata' directory under 'branches' in the svn read-only repo. So, 
incidentally, you will have to apply the above patch on that directory only 
if that makes sense or tell me what...

ALSO, you need to fix the tests if necessary before commit; two of them fail 
now: messages tests 'XML & JSON output' (in the metadata branch build).

1. All code that I commented, which I decided to retain as commented code, 
is of one-line comments only now.
2. Removed unused 'entityDecode' method which had been introduced 
temporarily as a sanity check on my understanding of the issue.
