Remove Deep Naming in Download Package

Reported by: jdshaw Owned by: jquery-infrastructure
Priority: minor Milestone: 1.9.0
Component: [meta] ui.downloadbuilder Version: 1.8.20
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:

Within the download package, there are several references to the version number in the individual filenames - eg "jquery-ui-1.8.20.custom/css/custom-theme/jquery-ui-1.8.20.custom.css" It would be helpful to have an option to reference the version number only at the enclosing top level folder with generic naming within the package for easy switching/upgrading of versions, especially within a large website. So "jquery-ui-1.8.20.custom/css/custom-theme/jquery-ui.custom.css"

That way, instead of referencing the file with the version name and having to potentially update that (and other file references) or manually move files around (or write a script to do it), one could (eg in a makefile) declare a version number and then use a single symlink to reference the entire suite, all the while keeping the file reference(s) within the webpages generic. This is currently doable with multiple symlinks (or other strategies), but it would be much cleaner without the deep naming.

Thanks for considering!

Thanks for the heads up. I'll do some more digging in the archives to see the older discussions.
