Subject Re: procedure for submitting a new task for optional.jar

Given that these are highly specialized tasks and probably not useful by
most Ant users, how do you feel about submitting your tasks to the
ant-contrib Sourceforge project rather than having it in the Ant "optional"
tasks?

I'm not sure what the ant-contrib rules are - so I'm just guessing that they
would be ok with accepting such things.
