Subject Newletter - Ant contribution
Date Tue, 03 Dec 2002 22:59:41 GMT

This is just a quick blurb on what is happening in the Ant project 
recently. Hope it can be included. If anyone else would like to add 
something, please feel free.

The major news is that on 18th November, the Apache board promoted Ant 
from a Jakarta subproject to a top-level Apache project. An initial PMC 
has been formed which will draft the bylaws for the new project. This 
change is mostly about the management structure for the project within 
Apache and will not affect the day-to-day technical direction. So it is 
business as usual for Ant development. In particular Ant retains a 
strong relationship to the Jakarta project.

The Ant GUI, Antidote, is being revived and discussions are getting 
underway on the Ant-dev mailing list. If anyone wants to get involved in 
this project, they are most welcome.

Recent discussions on the Ant core have included how Ant can support 
polymorphism (passing new types to existing tasks - e.g. new types of 
filesets, filters, etc).
