           Summary: [depends] be able to (partially) disable/control the
                    dependency graph calling ant
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.7.0
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Core
        AssignedTo: dev@ant.apache.org
        ReportedBy: dev.tom.menzel@gmx.net


use case:
the dependency graph is fairly long and consumes quite some time to execute all
steps.
especially when testing it occurs that not all tasks in the chain need to be run.

it seems that others the same problem solving it with rather clumsy workarounds.

http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/ant-user/200703.mbox/%3C00a501c76ac6$34e043d0$3a20a8c0@isabelteam.be%3E

command line options to handle this would be great, like:
--skip <target list>
RESULT: execution is normal except for those targets in the list. these are
skipped, meaning that their tasks arent executed, but their dependencies are
stilled honored and followed up.

--stopat <target list>
RESULT: when the dependency graph is created it wont follow any dependencies of
the named targets.

--nodepends <target list>
RESULT: only the given targets would be executed in the given order

--newtarget <target list>
RESULT: creates a new empty target with the given targets as the depends value.
the idea be hind this is: although you can execute several targets from the
command line in one go, the dependency graph is fully executed for each, causing
unneeded duplicate execution due to overlap

i realize that with a good build file design this options are not needed as
much, but you are not always in control of the build file or dont have the time
to rewrite/change it.
