Platforms affected


What does this PR do?

Resolves an issue where a regex was overly greedy when comparing plist entries for merging and could result in collapsing several of them into a single entry.

What testing has been done on this change?

Added a test that fails with current master and passes with this change, based on the details provided by @knight9999 in the JIRA bug. It sounds like this might be the cause of GH-44 as well (/fyi @donnie-jp).

Now, my fix assumes that we're always looking for $(something) and not just $something, which might not be a safe assumption. Unfortunately I'm not well-versed enough in iOS stuff to know :(

This looks good.
In the future I think we should find a way to distinguish the placeholder (i.e. variable with $ prefix) in cordova plugin.xml and the placeholder in xcode plist. For example, introducing escape character.
