I was browsing around the issue lists on Google AppEngine, just some midnight light reading before going to bed…

I stumbled on the following issue, marked as critical:

http://code.google.com/p/googleappengine/issues/detail?id=1970

What’s interesting about it is that this is also what is causing all the problems with running Grails development on Windows machines. If this is fixed, then building Grails for GAE on Windows machines might work without any workarounds. Lets hope the Critical focus remains on this issue, and that it is resolved.
