Hi folks,

Back in March, Sam and Julie had a discussion about how <property> entries in a <source> section of a mine's project.xml were set in that source's 
Converter/PostProcessor [1]

Just fyi, since this didn't appear to be documented, I looked into the mechanism (the crux is DynamicAttributeTask.configureDynamicProperties()) and wrote up a 
short piece of doc at [2] for future reference.  Please feel free to let me know about any mistakes or if you think there it would be useful to add more detail.
