Subject [jira] [Comment Edited] (OFBIZ-7534) Migrate OFBiz from Apache Ant to Gradle build system

--------------------------------------------------------------

So there is a chicken-egg situation here (triggered by this permissions aspect): no one can
assess the impact of the change without some kind of extra work in their test environments
and you can't preserve permissions with patches. I would say that is a fail..

The way to get around this, and save you (and others) a lot of work, is to commit your changes
to a separate dev branch. The impact is large enough. And you - as a privileged contributor
- have the mandate to create one.  Those who want to test your changes then just have to execute
an update of the check-out to get the latest revision. On the plus side there is then also
the aspect of being able to reference revisions when it comes to reporting findings.
