Subject Re: "if" task

I'll add another annoying me too message to this thread.

We have a fairly complex Ant build script (just under 1000 lines, not
counting external properties files and a separate 300 line bootstrap nightly
build.xml) and it would be so much better with foreach and if tasks.

Yes, we could use the contrib tasks but there is some internal resistance to
using non-core tasks and I don't have much say in what goes into our CVS
controlled version of Ant. So having them in the core set of tasks would be
preferable.

Ciao,
Gordon
