I wasn't aware that the *.easyant.org resources were required for building EA.
Being able to build even an archived project is valuable as you said - even if _I_ think,
that we don't get new committers ...

But when these resources are required for building EA, why aren't they hosted on Apache infrastructure?
ATM we rely on external resources...
