      Description

      If you run "cordova prepare" from your project's root, but the parent directory has a www/config.xml file, it will try to use that file instead, and fail.

      Create a cordova project in /home/username/CordovaTest. Add to /home/username/CordovaTest/config.xml:

          <engine name="ios" spec="~4.1.0" />
          <engine name="android" spec="~5.1.1" />
      

      Then create an empty /home/username/www/config.xml file.

      Finally run:

      cd /home/username/CordovaTest
      cordova prepare
      

      You'll get an error, as it tries to read the parent directory's config file.
