Subject Re: [drlvm][build] Where to put mmtk.jar?
Date Thu, 26 Oct 2006 21:02:41 GMT
I'll need to consult within the MMTk world, but my preference would be to
distribute jar files for the vmmagic and mmtk interfaces, separate to the
implementation.

Leave it with me.

cheers

during "build fetch-depends".   We can change this if it causes
problems. Robin Garner, can you help us with this?  What is the best
