Hi Simeon,
that's quite a nice list. I must admit that when I asked about an ant
GUI some time ago I only thought about (c) Build Management, but the
Anthill screenshot showed me how nice it would be to administer projects
through a GUI as well.
The question is: how do we set priorities? What one is supposed to do
with ant is use it as a build tool. That means for me (and the whole
ArgoUML project) once a suitable build.xml is there, we rarely edit it,
but run targets every few minutes. So for me highest priority would be
(c), because I'm a user. The other parts of your list are interesting
and important as well, though. If anyone starts open development (I
haven't seen any Anthill code yet), I'd like to join in.
