Subject Re: XPath Extractor : Drop Tidy Option
Date Sat, 18 Nov 2017 11:38:14 GMT
Hi ,
@Graham, would you propose a PR to:
- deprecate the properties in GUI
- amend documentation to say it will be dropped  in N+2 and what is the
correct way

If you want to ask on user mailing list, feel free to do so.
Even if users use it, they should move out of it, but I am ok with the 2
steps process (Deprecate in N+1, Remove in N+2).

Thanks
