Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Apache Groovy 2.4.4-incubating
Date Mon, 08 Jun 2015 20:07:07 GMT
Hi Paul,

thanks for the feedback. :)

I have not looked into it yet, I was waiting for feedback.

My plan was to take the current jars, base-64 encode the binary their 
content, put it as a string into the tests and let the test create the 
jars by decoding the string and writing it into a file. So the jars are 
in effect still created by a third party mechanism.
