Subject Need feedback for Bugzilla 58555
Date Tue, 27 Oct 2015 18:29:48 GMT
Hi all

<https://bz.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=58555>

I'd rather not repeat what I've typed there.  The tldr version: <exec>
without dir defaults to executing in the current directory if
vmlauncher="true" and the project's basedir if vmlauncher="false" - and
has done so ever since we introduced vmlauncher back in Ant 1.4.

I think we can fix the immediate problem of the bug report (dir is
ignored if it happens to be the CWD) but don't dare to change the split
logic WRT no dir attribute at all.  I'm afraid there will be build files
that rely on either behavior, so the best we can likely do, is to
document the difference.

Am I overlooking anything?

Stefan
