I kept silence during discussion, cause I've been busy during
this period. I want to comment your specification now.

-------------------------------------------

Design goals.
=========
Devide all goals on high priority and lower priority.
High priority goals concern on user.

Simplicity
Understandability
Extensibility
+ Efficiency.
+ Interoperability
+ Reliability
+ Consistency

Lower priority aims concern on developer and development process.
+ Flexibility
+ Maintainability
+ Portability
+ Testability

Efficiency
=======
Program run utilizing all resources in an efficient way with little or
no influence on overall performance. Also it will offer the potential
for increased effectiveness of those resources.

Interoperability
==========
Has the ability to work with many Java compilers as well with
third-party vendor software.

Reliability
=======
Has high level of reliability.

Consistency
========
The look and behavior of the program will be consistent with Java
industry-leading products.

Flexibility
=======
Product has high flexibility level. All external libraries can be easily changed
on
new or updated versions.

Maintainability
==========
Easy to maintain and build.

Portability
=======
Can be easily ported on new Java platform.

Testability
=======
Easy to verify that the code works correctly.

.........

TARGETS
========
In the specification you defined target dependencies. Should
we insert here or anywhere else information about file
dependencies?

TASK JAR FILE
=============
Question: Should we say that tasks belong in a JAR file with the .tsk extension?
Answer: I think it isn't necessary. In the next section you clear indentified
where
this JAR files must be stored. I think it is enough.

ANT PROPERTIES
USER PROPERTIES
===============
We have too levels of properties. I think it's useful too add third one:
project.properties.
This file can be located directly to the project basedir directory.
In this file will be convinient to store project related inforamtion (names,
pathes, tunings).
This file has highest priority than user.properties.

----------------------------------------

This is all I wanted to say right now. Will be back for further comments ...
