Agreed, but I just wanted it to be available for install, not for all other
What I meant to do was something like:
feature.feature build-type : commercial evaluation ;
install License : License_Commercial.txt : <location>doc <name>License.txt
install License : License_Evaluation.txt : <location>doc <name>License.txt
This would select the appropriate file and install it with the same name. Of
course, I could do it differently but I think it would be an useful feature.
