Subject why is commons-collections being modified?
Date Fri, 18 Nov 2005 20:33:41 GMT
hi all, 

i'm building 5.5.12. the jakarta-tomcat-5/build.xml explicity removes
code from the commons-collections code base. i see in the change log
some reference about this saying it is being repackaged to reduce the
package size. is this the reason why? or are the are additional reasons?
for instance: 

  	<replace dir="${tomcat-dbcp.home}/src/java/org/apache/commons">
  		<replacefilter token="return
  			value="return l;" />
  		<replacefilter token="import
  			value=" " />

why is this code being removed? is there some bug? or is this simply to
save space? 

we package tomcat along with other components, some of which may have
dependencies on commons-collections. i would prefer to use a single copy
of commons-collections, so i'm wondering if i can simply use
commons-collections as is within tomcat.
