Hi,

Please pardon my ignorance, but I wonder if you can clarify for me a bit
what you mean by this:

>>> Are  you relying on <available>'s back door to changing
property values? <<<

Are you simply asking if people are using <available> at all? If so, my
answer is yes, most definitely. I have a series of checks based on
<available> that set up portions of the build to fail if resources are
not available. 

Cheers,

Matt

Quick question: Are  you relying on <available>'s back door to changing
property values?

[ ] Yes

No need to reply if the answer is "No" - I'm just looking for folks that
are.

If yes, could you please elaborate on how/why you are doing so?

And if you don't know what this question refers to, nevermind :) - its a
"feature" that might possibly be removed for the sake of beefing up
Ant's
property handling architecture and I'd like to get a feel for how
widespread
this unorthodox usage is.

Thanks,
    Erik
