Subject Re: [PATCH] Buid file parse error msgs wrong when including XML s nippets
Date Wed, 03 Jul 2002 16:21:58 GMT

Yes, I saw that wonderful modification to support <import>, which is
exactly what we needed, but since it's not going to be in Ant 1.5
we're (so far) going to just use included XML snippets.  I'm looking
forward to seeing and trying Antipede!  :)

But, for the time being, and for Ant 1.5, I'd just like Ant to
correctly report which file needs fixing when something went wrong.
It's a very small change (a single line of code), with a big benefit.
