RE: script task: suggestion about the docsHI,

If you would like another newbie to help out, I am just starting to work my
way through a build process using Ant as well - though the time I have
available to spend on that work is somewhat sporadic. I would be willing to
contribute to your efforts.

  As I said in a prior post, I am working on a Intro to Ant document for my
Company.  I would love to work with you two to build this document.

  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
  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.
  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.
