Subject Re: Why are we not using xmlbeans for attributes.xsd processing?
Date Sat, 07 Oct 2006 22:50:52 GMT
local-attributes.xsd is attributes.xsd miss-named :-P

Sucks to have to do all this custom processing though... not very  
happy that we strip out comments from config.xml and overwrite all of  
that.  Well, maybe when jaxb2 is std we can just use that.

Still sucks to not be able to use tools to handle this for us just  
because of some extra size somewhere.... :-(
