It was complete a long time ago, I was just preoccupied with a bad bug and forgot to announce.


P.S. For once I agree with Mickael. A failed build is not "bad" in cases like we saw with EGit's qualifier being wrong -- if for no other reason than we don't know if the qualifier was wrong. Perhaps something is wrong with their deployment or build, and a "loose" requirement would have made them miss that fact. Whereas now they have to investigate and explain themselves. :) Well, I hope they do! The only mistake they made was hitting "commit" and not waiting around to see what happened (perhaps because BIRT or others broke the build? (just a possible example -- I am guessing) and they could not wait around for BIRT to fix the build? Could be many reasons why, and I don't blame any one team as much as I sometimes sound, because we should all be acting like "one team - one product" when it comes to the Sim. Release!

the EGit contribution went through Gerrit 
but unfortunately a later build overwrote the release candidate build on the download server since I missed to update the build job's configuration.
I restored the release candidate build from Nexus but then noticed that this would break the fix William had done to workaround this issue
so I rolled back this restore. I am considering to use a Nexus URL next time since it would have prevented this issue since Nexus doesn't allow
to redeploy a release build. Any concerns against that ?
