Subject Re: Promotion: Bugzilla 53723 - [Patch] Local task: local by prefix, all local, New: global task
Date Sun, 16 Sep 2012 15:24:13 GMT
Hi,
FWIW, I approve generally of this feature and was soon going to start
working on something similar, only I had intended to support regex
matching.  I'm not quite sure when I will be able to get back to work
on Ant, but I need the feature so rest assured it will get in there at
some point.
