a project.  My purpose was to have  the compile time errors of all the subprojects as part
of automated build report. The 'ant' task will stop building as soon as one subproject fails.
I tried using java/exec tasks with 'failonerror '  attribute as false, but the problem with
 this approach is that build status of subprojects is not available to the main build process
and resulting Total build successful though subprojects are failing in-between.

task internally uses 'ant' only.  What I would like to know is: Can I post this task of mine
to apache or Is there any existing task/workaround available for the above required behavior.

Ant 1.6 has '<subant> that wil bulk compile a project ... does this do 
what you want or are there changes you'd recommend?
