Extra command line switches on VSSGET

           Summary: Extra command line switches on VSSGET
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.5
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: Other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Enhancement
          Priority: Other
         Component: Optional Tasks
        AssignedTo: ant-dev@jakarta.apache.org
        ReportedBy: f_ohagan@hotmail.com


We have found a problem with VSSGET when running a build. A common task is to 
get the latest version of the code from SourceSafe, and then copy over the top 
of this the files that a developer has been working on (before checking in).

This doesn't work, because by default, the time stamp on all the files will be 
the time of the get, not the time the files were modified. So none of your 
locally modified files have a later timestamp and are ignored.

There are command line switches that can change this, as listed in bug <a 
href="http://nagoya.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=4387">4387</a>. 

It would be very useful if there were an additional attribute / nested tag that 
could take any arbitrary command line switch to be added to the ss command, 
like with the &lt;arg&gt; tag in the &lt;java&gt; task.

I think it would also help people to put something about this in the 
documentation. There's a work around, which is to open the VSS client, and 
choose Tools|Options and change 'Set date/time on local files' on the 'Local 
files' tab. This changes the behaviour of the command line operation as well as 
the GUI.
