Subject Re: [VOTE] Ivy 2.4.0 Release - take 2
Date Wed, 17 Dec 2014 03:09:58 GMT
Nicolas, Jean-Louis, what are your thoughts ?

The problem reported by Stefan with the ivy.xml in the source archive must be caused by something
in the build process replacing the ivy.xml of the source tree with an expanded version of
the same file generated when the <ivy:publish/> task runs ?

I guess a minor edit in the build file to make this modified version of ivy.xml go somewhere
under the build folder should address this issue for this release and the next ones.

I have not spent myself a lot of time on ivy yet but I would like to spend some in 2015 -
or maybe even next week if my kids are busy out of the house …

I also know how it feels when one creates a release candidate and some minor problems are
found and one has to again go through 20 steps in a ReleaseInstructions document …

But I am sure we will get there finally. 

Best regards,
