Subject Re: [VOTE] target-less build files
Date Wed, 07 Aug 2002 02:16:53 GMT
Somehow this slipped through my usual careful radar of e-mails, and I 
apologize (switched to a new O/S and new e-mail client and the flood of 
e-mails has not stopped to let me catch my breath).  Is this vote still 
on the table?

I'm +0, if it still matters.  I really like having all tasks be 
available at the top-level, but it would not matter to my personal 
builds whether targets were optional as I'd still use them myself.
