It would be.

Ant will use either createXYZ or addXYZ, not both.  Use addXYZ if Ant
can create the object itself (it needs no-arg constructor) and
createXYZ if only the task itself can do so (non-static inner class of
the task for example).

I'd use 

    private Vector projects ...

    public void addPvcsproject(PvcsProject p) throws BuildException {

and make your PvcsProject a stand alone class or a static inner class.
