Hi Jesse.

Ignoring the amusing fact that you really do need a third party add on to
make VSS work over long haul links, and the even more poignant fact that
sourcesafe has a well founded reputation for not keeping your source safe,
your contribution is indubitably welcome.

There are some task guidelines in the documentation which provide a
description and a summary of what is preferred for a submission, which come
down to
-your code, preferably in a style consistent with the rest of ant
-a doc page in HTML
-some test routines, wherever possible.

The tests are there to ensure everything keeps working over time; tasks
dependent upon third party packages tend to be harder to test and so tested
less often, but that doesnt mean that they arent still useful. Look in
src/testcases for details.
