Subject RE: Chainedmapper question -- going crazy!

Yes, it was. 

Thank you both.  I am very much a newbie to using ant (if you hadn't
noticed :)) and realized that the issue that I was having was related to
how I was updating my repositories from CVS prior to copying the files
to where I do my builds from.

Peter's example worked perfectly after I figured this out.

Thanks again!

The example Peter provided should be all you need. 
Really.
