Subject RE: "if" task
Date Tue, 30 Apr 2002 18:21:42 GMT
Dodging the issue I see. How sad. Especially when one sees what's get
"dumped" to 1.5 all the time by following ANT-dev. You're not really +0 it
seems to me, just finding excuses for not appearing -1. And the silence of
other -1's is also so telling I'm afraid. So much for the community
aspect... That product-specific optional tasks get pushed back to the
product they support is fair, but in this case it's just not right. --DD

Won't happen for Ant 1.5.  The tasks are already available so its not as
though having them in the core is mandatory.  Dropping them into a build
file is only one <taskdef> to get all ant-contrib tasks defined - and
placing a single tiny JAR in ANT_HOME/lib.
