Description Jesse Glick 2006-01-29 01:09:23 UTC
Some build scripts may define a special basedir="..." and rely on file paths
inside the script being relative to that basedir. If you wish to load properties
in project.xml from some *.properties in the project, this could make it
difficult to keep build.xml in synch with project.xml.

Workaround in case you can modify build.xml is to define in


and use that in both build.xml and project.xml.

Changing the default component owner to tzezula.

This old bug may not be relevant anymore. If you can still reproduce it in 8.2 development builds please reopen this issue.

Thanks for your cooperation,
