Subject RE: failonerror; general solution
Date Mon, 06 Oct 2003 10:06:58 GMT
If the CORE keepers do not want to add <trycatch/> to core ANT
that is fine. But to now come up with some obscure attribute for
<sequential/> to do exactly the same thing it is available
in antcontrib, but with a different syntax, I think it is 
preposterous. 

If the argument against <trycatch> is the scripting tabu, somebody 
will have to explain why <sequential/> would be less of a scripting
feature.

Otherwise, just point the few people that need such functionality
to antcontrib, and let it at that.
