Subject Re: Idea: Allow users to patch feature files
Date Tue, 26 Feb 2013 14:43:40 GMT
I think the best way for providing bug fixes is having bundle fragments without complicating
features mechanism. You may release fragment attached to bundle which must be fixed. Just
by using another feature repository.
