Hi Buckminsterland

I'm putting the polishing touches on my now Buckminster-built (whoo hoo!) RCP product and working on getting the version information in the about screen. I have variables which are filled in by the about.mappings file and have been reading this bug:

https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=321753

My issue is this:
In the main feature which includes the product definition when I call the ant task
<extractFeatureVersion file="${sp:manifest}" property="full.version"/> the
full.version is set correctly (ie it has the value 1.0.0.vblablabla per how I have set it).

However, my about.mappings and branding stuff
are in a different plugin. If I call that <extractFeatureVersion ... within my
branding plugin, instead of just getting the version back I get the contents of
the entire manifest in the property!

should extractFeatureVersion work in the branding plugin? Should I be passing it a different value than its (the plugin's) manifest?

thanks

Tamar
