Subject Re: Broken tutorial
Date Tue, 29 Aug 2017 07:05:57 GMT
Sorry about the confusion. It might be useful to add an <echo> with an
explanation to the build file, too -- BUILD FAILED is a bit unnerving ;-)

I noticed another problem with asciidoc: 1.5.4 fails on my box with the
latest Java 8u144, I had to downgrade it to 1.5.3 -- did anyone else see
It looks like 1.6.0 is on the way (though it fails currently with "cannot
load ant.adoc"), so I am not sure if it is worth the while to report it

I was looking into icons, gifs vs svgs, and decided that Unicode glyphs
could be used instead. I will commit a replacement for warning.svg later
treelist needs a little more work (plus changes to Subversion, and we will
need to keep the icons anyway for ancient documentation's sake -- any ideas
as to what is the best solution?)
