Subject [lang] Should RELEASE-NOTES.txt be copied into the source distribution?
Date Mon, 23 May 2005 22:11:41 GMT

Gary ran across something that I hadn't run across due to how I was creating 
the various distributions, and I'd like to ask for a concensus on how to 
handle this. Here is the scenario:

1. Download the source distribution (i.e.,
2. Attempt to build a binary distribution using the ant script: $ ant 
build.xml dist-build-2.1

This fails because the source distribution (build with maven) does not 
include the release notes files RELEASE-NOTES.txt, which the ant build 
assumes is available and tries to put into the binary distribution. The 
obvious solution is to include RELEASE-NOTES.txt in the source distribution, 
but I wanted make sure there wasn't anyone opposed to doing so.I'm going to 
go ahead and rebuild the RC6 source distribution with this additional file, 
and if there is any objection we can discuss.
