Subject Re: [PATCH] PropertyCopy and Foreach (NEW OPTIONAL TASKS)
Date Fri, 21 Sep 2001 21:04:12 GMT
TBD.  whatever solution we come up with, it's better than
50 people submitting a task and all of them being rejected.
The whole reason behind this several people have expressed
frustration with trying to submit something (even an optional
task) into the ant baseline, as they keep getting rejected,
usually with no other good reason that, "It's too programmery".
So, a contrib library would do the trick.  I'll iron out all
the details as we going along.

If reasonably useful tasks would be accepted as "optional",
then there would be no need to even do this.  So instead of
complaining about it, someone made a suggestion, and i'm
doing something that will help toward solving the problem.
