------- Additional Comments From stevel@apache.org  2004-02-16 14:53 -------
I am going to be unfair and mark this as a wontfix.

1. IBM and Sun keep all their stuff online as they can afford to. Apache lives
off donated bandwidth (and development effort) and cannot afford to host the
documentation for everyone. Instead we host the manual pages of the latest
shipping version, and not: any older versions, any newer versions, any javadocs.

2. If you get your version in an IDE, you should encourage them to integrate the
Ant docs into the IDE. Some do, and it makes for a very nice experience.

3. You are free to download an old version of ant and extract the manual from that.

If you are able and willing to donate servers and diskspace we can revisit this
decision. Really. It is purely a bandwidth and capacity issue.
