Subject Re: [jira] Created: (FELIX-826) Enable the remote shell to bind to an IP and make the default
Date Thu, 20 Nov 2008 15:58:28 GMT
Hi all,

In my personal opinion, although backward compatibility is important in 
this case I would do it for two main reasons:
1) In most cases this will be the desired behaviour.
2) In the cases where it is not, it still does not break the 
application, but only the administration of the application, so the 
impact of the change is not very big. Also the change is pretty easy to 
detect and if this is documented on the webpage very fast to correct.
