Subject Re: [jira] Commented: (GERONIMODEVTOOLS-522) has a trailing backslash in it
Date Sat, 04 Oct 2008 02:01:44 GMT
We don't re-release prior artifacts.  To incorporate any new fixes, 
you'd have to create a GEP 2.1.4 release.

BTW - There will be a 2.1.4 Server release sometime in 4Q08 or 1Q09, as 
there have been several useful/important fixes since 2.1.3 and several 
JIRAs that need to be addressed for users who don't want to move to 2.2 
right away.....

may not sound like a terrible bug on its own, but because that content ends up getting expanded
inside the feature.xml, I think it escapes the next character in the feature.xml, which in
this case is the "<" which closes a tag. This leads to an incorrectly generated content.xml
file if you are generating an update site using Eclipse's P2 metadata generator, and you have
the Geronimo feature present when you are doing the metadata generation. I don't know if it
has any other side-effects.
