Subject RE: Any interest in a remote Ant server?
Date Mon, 08 Mar 2004 23:17:24 GMT
I am interested in this. This would be usefull for building and deploying Java webapps also.
If the commiters are not interested in adding this functionality to ant (which I would guess
is the case), a sourceforge project may be the best option.
