Subject RE: Trying FTP Again
Date Wed, 25 Jul 2001 13:57:20 GMT
I am disinclined to make FTP work differently from all other tasks.  I
understand the decision that Ant should end on a failure.  I would rather
see the retry become part of the task def then part of a particular task,
and I don't think that would fly.

This is redundant.

Hmm, one could add a retry attribute to the task - want to submit a
patch? 8-) Maybe it should accept a number (and have a different name)
for a maximum of retries, you don't want to have your build running
for months just because there is a typo in the build file.
