Subject Re: [PATCH Antlib proposal] Second installment (CORRECTION)
Date Mon, 18 Feb 2002 22:54:33 GMT
Thanks Stefan, it works fine.

I would like to hear the committers comments about my finding of the way <description>
works or does not work
correctly. And how it should be fixed, if we agree it is kind of broken.

The reason I say it is broken, is because the current implementation expects that from this
file:

<project>
  <description>A</description>

  <target ...>
    <description>B</description>
  </target>

  <target ...>
    <sequential>
      <description>C</description>
    </sequential>
  </target>
<project>

We seem to expect that the description would read: "AB" ignoring "C". Which is to say the
lease odd.
It seem to me we should change the implementation of <description> so that it does not
rely on some
very unreliable side effect.

What do people think?

Jose Alberto
