Subject Re: Ant-1.5.1beta1 <ant ... inheritRefs="true" /> not working, nor is nested <reference ... />... bug???
Date Sat, 14 Sep 2002 04:03:16 GMT

This is pretty definitely a bug in Ant-1.5.1beta1 (and earlier).  Can one 
of the developers comment on this?  I didn't see anything quite like it 
listed in bugzilla and I wanted to confirm that the behavior actually was a 
bug before reporting it.  Or, am I mistaken and just not understanding how 
things should work here?

thoughts?
