Subject echo task documentation error
Date Mon, 30 Oct 2006 03:35:56 GMT
A very minor point:

The ant manual states that the echo task's message attribute is required "unless 
data is included in a character section within this element."

This appears to be false.  I have by accident discovered that

<echo/>

has the effect of inserting a totally blank line into the output.  It doesn't 
even show the normal [echo] prefix.  I don't know if this is intentional, but it 
is actually quite useful.
