Subject Re: Need some advice on how to include repository/* bits in the boilerplate
Date Fri, 16 May 2008 00:36:26 GMT
Hey, so now the plugins are doing the trick... yay... thanks David!

But, now I'm wondering, when the server loads, it shows those plugins  
loading, which is fine I guess... but I'm wondering if they are eating  
up memory or building classpath muck that is never going to be used by  
the server (or well, not until we get support for running an rshd  
instance in the server).
