Description James Elson 2004-12-23 11:08:29 UTC
Would it be possible to add a feature to the various tasks that use filtering to
fail when a token is recognised in the file being copied, but there is no value
defined for that token. e.g. a "failOnUndefToken='true'" attribute). The present
behaviour of passing the token through unmodified may be good in many
situations, but we've found it all too common for someone to add a new token to
the file but then people building the code forget to add the token to their
filtersfile - it would be good for this to fail at build time rather than runtime.
