Subject Re: AW: DO NOT REPLY [Bug 23397] - Need attribute for target tag to indicate hidden/internal target
Date Fri, 26 Sep 2003 08:43:41 GMT
We comment (with descriptions) all targets. Descriptions for targets
that are not public are there for build file maintenance. However, we
could always just remove descriptions and put them in as XML comments I
guess. But this conversation's really for a different forum now!
