Subject Re: Question of re-use within Apache Projects
Date Wed, 08 Aug 2001 05:05:13 GMT
Actually, I think I'm wrong..... the MimeMail task hasn't been committed -
has it?

I don't see the mail package under optional at:
http://cvs.apache.org/viewcvs/jakarta-ant/src/main/org/apache/tools/ant/task
defs/optional/

For some reason I thought it had been committed but perhaps I got confused
with the other patch I submitted to JUnit that did get committed.

Is it possible to get MimeMail added prior to 1.4?   Its optional, and is
very useful for sending rich reports from Ant - specifically JUnit.   Also,
an article I wrote for developerWorks is being published (sometime this
week) describing the use of my JUnit enhancements and the MimeMail task.

Thanks,
    Erik
