I think it would be best to test with Cordova CLI, would be ideal to test with plugin which may be affected by this change. I can take a better look tomorrow.

I haven't tested this, but the changes look good to me

@brodybits Since there is a test that specifically targets the changed code, I'm quite confident it's OK.
However, some real-world testing is always good. Thanks for taking care of it 👍

@brodybits Did you test this on Windows yet? Or did I misunderstand your comment? 🤔

My apologies, no time for me to test it this week, probably not much time next week either. Considering that you tested it in spec and got an approval from someone else I don't think you should let me block it.

I do think it would be good for you to try a version of cordova-cli that does use a version of cordova-lib with this change and verify that it does actually solve the problem at some point.
