Description Jesse Glick 2009-07-10 19:37:25 UTC
CacheDirectoryProvider is currently an SPI only. It would be nicer for clients to be able to call an API, which could
also provide a fallback value in case the project's lookup supplies no implementation. Compare the other get* methods in

looks ok. Why change the default location for ant projects?

Comment 5 Jesse Glick 2009-07-13 16:20:45 UTC
Calling your comment MK01, I decided to change the default location for Ant-based projects to something a bit simpler
(omit the /cache subdirectory) since the new API would anyway create a subdir for each interested module; the original
choice of dir name was intended to prevent clashes with or private.xml. No strong opinion about this

I should mention that issue #159642 is the reason for wanting to do this change now.
