[cross-project-issues-dev] Are about.ini, about.mappings and obsolete?


While checking why a rebuild refreshed a JAR file, I discovered that an about.mappings file gets rewritten during a build to contain the build-id. This was perhaps useful 5 years ago. Has it gone obsolete? Is it used anywhere?

It certainly seems a shame to churn built JAR files for no very obvious benefit.
