------- Additional Comments From jkf@apache.org  2005-10-24 20:20 -------
As Get gets a file from a URL, the content of the data retrieved is not
inspected by this task. (Execution of a redirection of the contents would also
lead to the situation that it would not be possible to retrieve a content that
would redirect. Furthermore we cannot know if a certain content is a redirect
(remember it is just a file, not necessarily html or html with javascript).)

The mere presence of a meta http-equiv="refresh" does not mean that the page
cannot contain relevant data. It can be combined with timers, to present
different data after each other.

HTTP 30x responses should currently be followed, as this is part of the HTTP
protocol. I have no doubt that this is working, as it is part of the standard
java libraries used by ant.
