Ok, I understand you need to limit the dependencies on the main Ant
development.

So my questions is now : how do I contrinbute to Antlibs?
Does it have a way to allow other developers to take over the src and
contribute improvements?

I am ok about hosting the task externally myself (does prevent others from
contributing their time/changes though); in this case, how do I get the
task listed on http://ant.apache.org/external.html
