Subject Re: RepositorySelector.detachRepository, jetty-plus, gump and PatternLayout.test14

This would be really good to resolve.  As it stands, the GUMP automated  
runs of our unit tests have been offline for several months and  there  
is no consistency on the state of our unit tests.  That forces me to  
first figure out what tests are failing before I made a modification,  
hack the code so the rest of the tests pass, and then test my mod.  If  
you know that you are some tests for a while, I don't have a problem  
with the tests being commented out or otherwise bypassed as long as you  
remember to add them back.

So, did we intend to break existing implementations of  
RepositorySelector by adding the detachRepository method?  How can we  
resolve the issue:

Have Jetty declare that it depends on 1.2

implement detachRepository knowing that it would be ignored when  
building on 1.2 (and if so what should it do)

Revert RepositorySelector and introduce a new interface for
