Subject Include feature propose
Date Wed, 13 Mar 2002 12:36:48 GMT
It would be great if you'll implement include task(?).

I propose to implement it in following way:

<include [from=<build_file>] name=<name> (fileset=<fileset_id> | path=<path_id>
| target=<target_id>)>
		<!-- build files list -->

This task will include filesets, paths or targets from the specified build file(s).

It several build files specified: union of filesets, paths will be included.
If target is included, the only build file should be specified.

This task will be very useful to implement distributed build system.

Another propose is:

Using * (asterisk) instead of target name, some symbol to access actual target
name inside target.

This will be useful for distributed build system too. Local build will redirect actual
work to global build file.
