Subject RE: Experiences with Ant.

I received a direct reply from Joseph (but I cc'ed him on my email as well).
It sounds like he's having trouble subscribing, but I pointed him to the archives.  

Maybe someone involved with the ant-user list could help him out with
subscribing?  Probably something getting corrupted in the confirmation
reply? (I've had that problem before.)

This reminds me, did anyone write Joseph directly?  If he's not properly
subscribed, he didn't get any of our messages.
