Description

14 years ago
Another spinoff. Originally reported in bug 265995 is the fact that the bz-devel
ENTITY is not valid XML. Bug 273519 became the bug to remove it unconitionally
from 2.18 (as 2.18 will never again be a development version). It was also
decided over there that the new method will be:

<!-- BZ-DEVEL --> Devel only stuff <!-- /BZ-DEVEL -->

So that a simple grep can find stuff that needs to be removed after branching.

Just for historical reference, the bz-devel ENTITY was put in to allow for a
really quick switch of devel/release when it came to tarball a release. Because
we now branch for every release before actually doing it, the ENTITY doesn't
serve as much purpose as it was intended to :).

colin: FYI, the bz-devel section is about to come out of installation.xml as 
part of bug 239852, so that's going to bitrot this patch just a bit.
