>                 Key: MNG-4713
>                 URL:
>             Project: Maven
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Design, Patterns & Best Practices
>    Affects Versions: 2.2.1
>            Reporter: Gili
> Please reopen MNG-3198. I believe that Brett misunderstood what Jochen wrote. There is
no simple workaround with the current Maven implementation. Jochen was saying that Maven should
use unix-style slashes under Windows for the sake of portability and let users convert to
Windows-style slashes themselves if they wish to use an external script.
> Simple use-case: try passing a $\{basedir\}-relative path into the "java.library.path"
property. It's impossible to do this portably under Maven's existing implementation.
