RFE: ignoreMissingBuildFiles option for subant





------- Additional Comments From gus.heck@olin.edu  2003-03-26 22:09 -------
I agree with the current default. I can see utility in both directions. In my
case I am willing to commit to being sure that the build file is there, because
the target I am writing is for develop-time compiling of multiple packages that
rely on a library (which I am going to edit and don't want to break). But when
deploying a product it would be very bad to silently ignore a missing build file
because the finished product that was deployed might come out broken. I think
Dominique got it right, I just want the ability to loosen things up.

hehe mid-aired... 

hmm the fileset solution does sound like it would work. I suppose that pushes my
patch into  the realm of syntax sugar... I kinda like it though because it suits
how I think about the problem...
