Subject Re: [PROPOSAL] Car maven plugin dedicated to G 1.1
Date Tue, 22 Aug 2006 20:33:26 GMT
What helper module are you talking about?

I'd rather us not spend too much effort trying to make the car plugin  
super-uber awesome in all situations and versions... that would be a  
waste.  If you want to spend some effort, then rip out the need for  
car files and this problem (and all of he other car related problems,  
past present and future) will go away.
