Subject Re: Promotion: Bugzilla 53723 - [Patch] Local task: local by prefix, all local, New: global task

I like this feature. I have been using the local task multiple times in my targets to name
properties, this enhancement will make my build scripts much more cleaner.

Subject: Promotion: Bugzilla 53723 - [Patch] Local task: local by prefix, all local, New:
global task
 
Hello,

about a month ago I added an enhancement request with patch to ant bugzilla.
As there were no feedback on bugzilla, I thought I start a little promotion.

The patch adds some functionality to the local task:

     <!-- foo is a local property - like today -->
     <local name="foo" />

     <!-- All properties with the prefix "local." are local -->
     <local prefix="local" />

     <!-- all properties are local -->
     <local/>


Additionally the new task "global" was added to be able to export a
property from a scope if all other properties are defined local.

     <!-- all properties are local ... -->
     <local/>
     <!-- ... except the property gFoo -->
     <global name="gFoo" />


Most important for me (and hopfully others) are the addition to the
local task (local-by-prefiy and all-local). The global tasks seems
like a logical implication to me.

Please have a look at the description for Bugzilla 53723 and the patch.
It would be great if this enhancement would be included into ant.

Regards,
        Ralf
