Subject RE: script task: suggestion about the docs
Date Fri, 22 Jun 2001 18:45:20 GMT
Hi Suu,

I've monitored this discussion group for many months now. I've worked to
develop our companies build system. There are things I still don't quite
understand, but many things that I've already figured out. I've written my
own tasks, and read through many of the existing tasks to figure out how
that work. I know what it is like when you are starting out, and you
struggle to understand what is a target, and what is a task.

Here is what I propose: I am willing to work with you, and maybe a few other
beginners, to develop a "Starting with Ant" document. I am not a tech
writer, and I probably can't put more than 15 minutes a day intro it. I
don't even know what kind of format the Ant project would want this in. But,
I am willing to take it on if you are!

What do you think?

Jeff Post

    Very good idea. I'm totally for that

    Chicken and egg problem.
I for one, would like to contribute when I can, but I'm still struggling
trying to figure out how to make it work, or to simply understand the
intention behind it.
