Description Milan Kubec 2004-05-28 10:47:27 UTC
Rebuild Required Projects setting is the only one
using expression 'rebuild' it should be explained
the same way as when doing project build - Clean &
Build Required Projects. Otherwise user might be
confused what actually rebuild does (because it's
not used anywhere else). Also it isn't really
clean if it does clean on required project if user
runs only clean on his project that has dependency.

Jano please comment.

Actually I would personally prefer "Rebuild" rather than "Clean &
Build" - more succinct - but maybe this is not clear enough to some users?
Comment 2 jrojcek 2004-05-28 14:06:17 UTC
I agree with Milan, it should probably say "Build Required Projects".

About "Rebuild" vs "Clean and Build" - some users thought about "rebuild" doing quick 
build (without cleaning) and "build" doing the complete build (with cleaning) which means 
entirely opposite function. This appeared in one of the usability studies of previous 
projects effort.
