Be carefule how you put this. Look at the CVS tree and the people who have
actually made patches against ant in say the last 2 months. I suspect you
will be the lone committer who is at the meeting that you say aims "to
report to the Ant-Dev list a consensus about the general direction we
should take to move things further". Do you think this is appropriate ? ;)

The ideas about Ant2.0 (at least the non-revolutionary ones) are easily
accessible in archives. No real revolutionary ideas have been discussed
(except for two latest proposals) so I am not sure what it is that you
intend to come to a consensus about.

What makes you think that the current ideas about Ant2.0 product is a
mishmash. I think the aims/designs are relatively clear - the
implementation is completely fuzzy but there is little use hashing it out
when only one of the developers who is proposing a revolution is present.
