Subject [jira] Commented: (VELTOOLS-113) new DisplayTool features
Date Wed, 11 Feb 2009 05:52:59 GMT


Nathan Bubna commented on VELTOOLS-113:

Yes, a single patch is fine.  Unit tests and javadoc would be fantastic.  The plural method
doesn't sound all that useful for me, but if you've got tests and javadoc with it, then i
don't mind adding it.
