Well, be that as it may, I feel that having a pack200 task would be a great
feature.  We distribute our code via webstart and the pack200 format really
does do a great job compressing jar files.

The code I got from java.net did not quite work for me and I had to modify
it quite a bit.  I submitted my modifications back to the project where the
originals from, but then it didn't go anywhere.  In fact, I can't even find
the posts I sent with my modifications.  Maybe this is because the java.net
project (https://java-pack200-ant-task.dev.java.net/) says its defunct.  

In any case, is there anything that I can do to get this ball rolling?  I
don't want to step on any toes, or break any copyrights, but I certainly
feel that the pack200 should be a part of core ANT.

Mark

AFAIK the people developing the tasks at java.net have never approached us -
and we certainly don't walk around assimilating other people's code without
asking them.
