I moved all of the properties and the 'uptodate' task into an 'init'
target, and that part seems to work now, I get the proper results from

me that the file IS there so it sets the attribute to 'true'.

file I am testing for, but it still executes both times. Am I reading
something wrong? Should I be using an 'if' instead?

I attached my updated file again,
