In the Cordova plugin.xml documentation it is stated that the <resource-file> tag can have an attribute target. See next link: https://cordova.apache.org/docs/en/latest/plugin_ref/spec.html#resource-file
But when I try to use this target attribute it is just ignored and all <resource-file> configurations are added to the Resources directory on iOS.
It seems to me that the cordova-lib code just ignores this target attribute, see next link: https://github.com/apache/cordova-lib/blob/master/cordova-lib/src/plugman/platforms/ios.js#L165
The code grabbed from that link:
destFile = path.resolve(project.resources_dir, path.basename(src));
Here you can see the destFile is hardcoded for the resources_dir.
We are trying to add push notification sounds to the iOS Resources directory as well as adding it to either the bundle root or Library/Sounds. Because we have seen that since iOS 10 we need to put the sounds files elsewhere then the Resources directory to get it work.
