Re: [equinox-dev] disabled keyword expansion for osgi defined classes


Keyword expansion is an option for ASCII files in CVS.  This option allows the CVS server to replace keywords with information from the server when they are checked in.  For example, "$Header: ?" will insert the path to the file on the server, or "$Revision: $" will insert the version of the file.  This causes problems for the org.osgi.* files because we would like for the source to these files to remain identical to the source from the OSGi Alliance.  If keyword expansion is enabled for these files then the keywords will get replaced with information provided by our org.eclipse.dev CVS server.

I'm drawing a blank on "keyword expansion".

[equinox-dev] disabled keyword expansion for osgi defined classes








I turned off keyword expansion for the OSGi defined classes.  This helps us keep the OSGi defined classes in sync with code delivered by the OSGi Alliance.  This only affects the the packages that start with org.osgi.* in the org.eclipse.osgi project.  Please be sure to pull the latest version of the org.eclipse.osgi project before committing any changes.  This change has affected all branches and versions of the org.eclipse.osgi project in equinox.


Thanks.
