           Summary: Add path support to <import> task
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.6.2
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: Core
        AssignedTo: dev@ant.apache.org
        ReportedBy: ah08010-apache@yahoo.com


I'd like to request the addition of filelist support to <import>.

I am trying to build a "backstop" system where users may or may not pull the
complete "build library" from the CM repository. If the library isn't in the
developer's personal workarea (read: home directory) then all import operations
go against a list of alternate locations (KGB, integration area, team shared
area, etc.)

Currently I'm using <available> to check a list of possible places, but this has
the drawback of requiring lots of code to support what amounts to a filelist.

I'd like to see <import> operate like many other tasks and accept a fileset or
filelist as a contained element. Then I could write:

<import>
  <filelist>...</filelist>
</import>

and have <import> bring in the first file located.

(Fileset support would be "nice to have" but not quite so useful in my case
because it's not ordered and I cannot guarantee that only one occurrence of the
file exists.)

Ideally would be a top-level <vpath> element, but that seems much harder.
