Subject RE: sending patches
Date Thu, 09 Mar 2006 11:06:51 GMT
thanks for the replies, I'll go and file a bugzilla report for this.

As for the feature I'm proposing, it's far from rocket science. It's basically a "true" update
of existing zip entries (as oposed to the current logic which will only update if the entry
is older than whatever you're trying to put in the zip). Please shout if my understanding
is wrong, but after many tests & debugging I think this is what's happening.

I've modified the code locally so that <zip> and all its subtasks can take duplicate="overwrite"
(in addition to "add", "preserve" and "fail") and it looks like I have what I want now.

thank you,

For a new feature/enhancement request opening a report on Bugzilla would 
be best.  If you'd like to discuss the features that you would like 
included (that your patch contributes), then this mailing list is a good 
place to chat in (kinda lost the plot with that sentence...)

All good - subclipse plugin sometimes gets a bit flaky on what has 
changed etc (at least Eclipse 3.1/Subclipse does)

Indeed - rubbing ground glass into your eyeballs is actually better than 
VSS, but I've just come across an Oracle problem (ODBC + InstantClient) 
that seems to be violently opposed to user happiness - so perhaps VSS 
isn't as bad as Oracle.
