Subject Re: Ant task and dirset/fileset
Date Tue, 25 Mar 2003 22:06:33 GMT
Ok I searched bugzilla and subant appears exactly once... but it says it 
is committed. Problem is I don't see it in the manual, where can I get 
some doc for it? (or do I need to go find that link to the xdocs that I 
forgot to bookmark?)
