Subject RE: [PROPOSAL] Release Plan Ant 1.2
Date Thu, 05 Oct 2000 14:41:23 GMT
+1 for the release of ant 1.2

For the documentation
a)Agree with Steve that we split the index.html to two files.It seems to
have become huge and difficult to navigate. We could divide it into two
logical parts
	1) The introduction , Getting ant .. through Directory based tasks
into part one . Add FAQ and Feedback sections to this
	2) The details: Builtin tasks , optional tasks etc into a second
b)All of ejb.html , javacc.html , jlink.html , junit.html, native2ascii.html
and sql.html  to have the copyright note at the bottom as in index.html
c)Noticed that none of the files in the docs directory had a link to
core.html. Think it will be appropriate to have a line mentioning this at
the end of the Introduction section.
Am a lil new to the list and dont know how I could make the changes and have
them commited , if the committers agree to the changes.
More after I nitpick the document and code.

+1 .

I think we do need to

-focus on the documentation. Verify all examples work, links, consistency,
  a) Has anyone made progress on any 'intro to ant' documents they want to
add in?
  b) Or how about a 'how to use ant in a production environment' doco?
  c) what about breaking up index.html into a start page, with separate
sections split off from it?

 -put together a basic press release (recall I drafted one for 1.1), perhaps
in conjunction with whoever is the official apache press office

-have some more simple example build.xml files to act as starting points.


(I won't be ApacheCon, but I believe I must have been visiting people in the
same building as Sam Ruby last week, given his apparent participation in the
ECMA C# meetings)
