Packaging Development Source


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,


Currently, the app/script that packs development source to release source is non-open source. There is thread on GitHub ( https://github.com/revive-adserver/revive-adserver/issues/154 ) where few developers stated that they're aware of this and they plan to rewrite that app/script and release it as open source, but currently they have tasks of higher priority.


My question is, does anyone knows what the app/script actually does?

Currently I'm OK with my development source being deployed in production, but I'm not sure if there are any security issues with this.

All informations/thoughts are much appreciated!

The closed source ant library takes care of removing unwanted files and regenerating the delivery files. The input for file removal can be found here:


Actually, regenerating delivery files is taken care via a php script now. That has probably changed years ago without me noticing. So the only task performed by the library is making sure that the package files don't include unwanted files/directories
