------- Additional Comments From conor@apache.org  2004-11-23 14:43 -------
No, C++ tasks will probably not become part of Ant. It is not possible to add
every useful task into Ant's core and optional tasks. In fact, we would argue
that there are already too many tasks in the main Ant distribution, tasks which
are difficult to maintain because committer resources in scarce in the more
esoteric areas.

We are at present happy to have tasks maintained external to Ant, such as those
from ant-contrib. The core of Ant will mostly concentrate on features where the
supporting classes are provided directly by the JDK. Optional tasks provided
with Ant will be those where there is significant committer support (CVS tasks
would be an example).

There are various exceptions to these principles but these are generally a
result of historical quirks.
