Subject AW: Why 2 key files ?

The first is the one Ant itself.
The 2nd is included via svn:externals into all antlibs, so they contains
a 
{MYANTLIB}/common/KEYS file. (Not in the root directory ...)

Ivy and IvyDE doesnt have any KEYS file.

I think thats historically grown. Each released project must have a KEYS
file
and for the (newer) antlibs these were extracted into a single file and
included.
I am not sure why we havent done that with Ants own file - external
that.


Sadly we cant include one file - only directories. According 
to http://www.nabble.com/svn:external-for-a-single-file-td15029576.html
this should be possible with subversion 1.6 ...
