Description Dave 2000-06-29 22:48:19 UTC
Project files are placed under Forte4J/system/projects.

This makes it awkward to save them in a source code control system along with
the regular source files. Would be nice if you could save these files in the
root of your filesystem.

Sandwich project implementation, when it matures, should make it possible to
store project files elsewhere, incl. under VC. Cannot be fixed in the shorter
Comment 2 Milan Kubec 2002-01-10 14:51:25 UTC
It doesn't seem to be resolved by sandwich filesystem. Is it going to
be possible in new project implementation? If so, please, set target
milestone, otherwise resolve as closed.
