Hi Everyone,

 

Here are some of the plans before we migrate to Apache

 

* We will finish up on the backlog items for 1.2.1 and then do the release after that.

* We will then apply our history changes from when we started in codeplex. This was agreed upon in the npanday-dev@incubator.apache.org mailing list.

* We need some backlog grooming and milestone items for our NPanday 2.0

 

Cheers,

Joe

I have a concern about http://npanday.codeplex.com/workitem/14105 which I posted on the issue.

I can't tell from the patch because it changes every line, but the description talks about changing from individual parameters to a single one where you pass everything you want to.  Or did it just add an additional "everything else" parameter?  

Most Maven plugins don't work this way, they have explicit parameters for each configuration option.  Even Javadoc, which has a ton of options, is like this.

Can someone please respond there or perhaps start another thread to clarify what actually changed in that patch before it gets into a release?

Thanks,

Wendy

I agree on what your saying Wendy. I've already posted my reply on the thread. We could bump the adding of configurations for wix plugin to the backlog for npanday 2.0 and also changing the description so that the one who picks up the issue could just add the particular configuration instead of making a general configuration.
