I would like to customise certain aspects of the autoupdater build, by passing in arbitrary variables (in the same way that I can use --setvars with the main builder).

At the moment this doesn't work. I can work around it by setting environment variables and referencing them within the customiser using ${env()} but is there a neater way to send them in via the command line?

Unfortunately it is not possible. However, since autoupdate projects are relatively small, you can perhaps use write a small script to generate the XML file dynamically?

This doesn't offer a great deal over the ${env()} approach, and the latter is less cumbersome to implement in our existing Ant build, so we'll stick with that for now.
