Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 48563] Dist build of trunk (Tomcat 7) fails because extras dir is missing
Date Mon, 18 Jan 2010 02:52:58 GMT

Whether extras are required to be built and distributed or not is subjective, I
agree.  Here are the reasons I thought building extras was optional:
- The name "extras" makes it sound optional
- The fact that it is a separate, additional command to build extras
- Extras' build is split out into a separate Ant build file from that of the
rest of Tomcat
- Not everyone who is building their own Tomcat zip or tar.gz (ready to run)
will need or wants the extras
- The one thing that I could see that was preventing it from being optional was
this single directory check (now fixed)
