Subject RE: [PROPOSAL] Class dependency checking for optional tasks
Date Sun, 21 Jan 2001 15:52:51 GMT
Don't mind me asking.. What is CJAN ??
If you don't want it before the 1.3 release, count me in on working on this
part. I'm leaving for India soon, so I don't know if I have time left there
(probably sitting on the toilet whol day anyway ;)).. With everybody
swimming in the big river I don't know exactly when I'm gonna leave though.
Do you have any idea on how to implement this ?
Just add some targets to the build.xml or do you want something more "nice".
When it's just adjusting the buid.xml it can probably go into 1.3 (deadline
was first week of february I read..) and more flexible system should
probably be in ant 2 style (whatever that may come to be).

Just let me know what the ant community wants for now...

This is what CJAN is supposed to do. Apparently details of it were
discussed before the PMC meeting so hopefully we will see it being worked
on soon. Feel free to jump into it thou ;)
