Subject BZ 48768: Properties wrongly read from file or not update during read
Date Thu, 18 Feb 2010 18:27:26 GMT
Convenience link: 

This problem happens in src/main/org/apache/tools/ant/property/ .  Peter, you extracted this class some two  
years ago, but at the point in the code at which the offense takes  
place, there is the comment:

         // Note: the master overrides (even if the name is subsequently
         //       prefixed)

I realize it's been awhile, but due to there being a comment to the  
effect that this behavior is intentional, do you have any  
recollection of why this was necessary?  The behavior reported in BZ  
does seem counter-intuitive and wrong.  Is there some rationalization  
for why the behavior is correct that I am not grasping?
