Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Geronimo Eclipse Plugin 2.1.2 (RC2)
Date Fri, 22 Aug 2008 14:48:22 GMT
Yes, I would agree with removing this, altho at this point that may
have to be for the releases after 2.1.2.  I think I have seen Tim make
a similar comment.  The ant script was great when we needed to
download many artifacts.  But, with only one, it's utility is reduced.
