Subject [RESULT] the simple stuff
Date Thu, 29 Mar 2001 07:44:19 GMT
The [ACCEPTED] requests

* namespace support so different concerns can occupy different namespaces
  from ant (thus SAX2/JAXP1.1)

* Java2

* remove all deprecated methods, attributes, tasks

* allow all datatypes to be defined anywhere - i.e. as children of
  project as well as of target.

* unify the namespace of all data types (ie properties + filesets +
  patternset + filtersets).

* add a user defined message if a target will be skipped because the
  if/unless attribute says so.

* allow user-datatypes to be defined via a <typedef> similar to <taskdef>.

Needs extra discussion and a final vote

* make properties fully dynamic, i.e. allow their value to be reassigned

  [will need more discussion because of vote by Glenn McAllister and
                                                Conor MacNeill]
