Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Please choose: The build system to use for 4.0
Date Thu, 16 Aug 2012 21:32:08 GMT
I would prefer to stick to ant for 4.0, particularly because switching
now could be a barrier to some devs in their progress toward bugfixing
4.0, if they have to take some time to get their build environment
working again... unless it's the very last thing you do.
