Subject Re: [jira] Created: (UIMA-1905) update trunk poms to depend on -SNAPSHOT versions of build tooling
Date Thu, 21 Oct 2010 15:22:55 GMT
This is probably a stupid question, but here goes
anyway: does this mean that I can build the sandbox
components from trunk again without having to
manipulate any poms or other xml files?
