Cross buildfile dependency





------- Additional Comments From stevel@apache.org  2003-09-02 16:55 -------
If you download and build ant1.6 from CVS you will see that we improve
inter-file work with an <include> task. However, doing cross-buildfile
dependencies is not something we currently want to address as it introduces far
too many complexities, even if its declarative nature is appealing. Also,
because we have few reserved characters in target names, coming up with a syntax
that doesnt clash with existing tasks is difficult (i.e I could be using : in a
target today)

Please grab the latest ant and see if the approach we are taking can be adapted
to meet your needs, and if not, tell is where we can improve it.

thanks,

steve
