Need attribute for target tag to indicate hidden/internal target





------- Additional Comments From stevel@apache.org  2003-09-25 16:41 -------
Actually this is a simpler defect than proper public/private attrs; the user
just wants the IDE to differentiate entry points from internal ones. 

Chris -the <target> element has a description attribute. Once you set the
description on a target, you are saying that this is public and others are
private. Ant on the command line, and in some IDEs (IntelliJ for example) use
presence/absence of a description as a cue for visibility in listing targets. I
dont know about netbeans -I would assume it does, but if it doesnt, well, you
could fix it :)

Also, we do have an 'ant list targets' feature. 
Type "ant -projecthelp" at the command line.
