Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 47755] The ant move task completely ignores the overwrite attribute
Date Fri, 28 Aug 2009 18:28:09 GMT

My directions said to create the X file LAST so it has a newer timestamp.  Your
test case wrote X first therefore it did not overwrite Y since it was older. 
However, after rereading the docs, it appears that is the correct behavior. 
That being said, I think that "overwrite=false" is a bit misleading since it
ALWAYS overwrites OLDER files.  How can ANT be told to not overwrite ANY files
since that is also a possible use case?
