           Summary: Documentation misleading about use of ANT_HOME
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.6.5
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Documentation
        AssignedTo: dev@ant.apache.org
        ReportedBy: rpgoldman@sift.info

The install documentation says that one should set the ANT_HOME environment
variable.  This is NOT sufficient, becauase, if there is an /etc/ant.conf file
on the system, any setting in that file will supersede the setting in the user's
environment.  Instead the documentation should tell the user to set up a
~/.antrc file to set the ANT_HOME environment variable.  Settings in that file
WILL supersede system-wide settings.
