Subject Re: MNG-2871 - internal dependencies and phases below "package"
Date Thu, 23 Aug 2007 15:24:16 GMT
Hi Brian,
When did you do that? The current patch tries first to use attached
artifact - and when it will fail then links
to the orginal project. So the current should work better then the "old"

I am likely to agree that this (patching) will cause additional mess and
we had better with a) option.

Thank you,
