Description Petr Jiricka 2004-08-23 10:09:52 UTC
A user complains (see URL) that build.xml is hard
to read, and thus makes the projects support not
very comprehensive.

So this request is to improve the readability of

One way to improve readability could be to
separate the IDE-specific targets (debugging,
single file compilation) into a separate (more
hidden) script, and only leave the ones that will
be used in headless builds in build-impl.xml.

See also somewhat related issue #46886.

Or could simply move IDE-specific targets to the end of build-impl.xml.

It's not at all clear to me from Lew's message that this has much to

Looks like WONTFIX for me for 4.0. I would rather wait till we get
more feedback on this from users. Then we can rearrange it.
