Subject RE: Setting multiple properties in one condition

Yes, this is what I had in mind with my statement below:

By having this <propertyset>, which would need mechanism to *pull in*
existing properties within it (using a prefix or regex match on the property
name I guess), one could streamline the property/sysproperty/param passing
to quite a few tasks.

Namely, I thought of:

<propertyset id="junit-stuff1" pattern="junit.*" />
<propertyset id="junit-stuff2" prefix="junit." />

The latter is of course a subset of the former, but we have prefix
attributes in other tasks as well (although only the former is really

Is any one planning on really working on that? If not, I could look into it
as well, provided we have enough consensus this time, it would be a worthy
addition (does that need a vote?)... --DD

<propertyset id="junit-stuff" pattern="junit.*" /> to pass down stuff that
is defined, and not the stuff that is undefined...
