when debugging my build file I notice that whenever using the JAR task I get
the following messages:

      [war] File C:\WorkArea\CVSArea\Releases\assetserver_5.14.webclient.war
includes a META-INF/MANIFEST.MF which will be ignored. To include this file,
set filesetManifest to a value other than 'skip'.

My question is - what is the purpose of ? What needs to go in
there and what baring does it have on WAR / JAR files?
