Subject RE: Ant should have an ext directory

Understood, but I want to create a department-wide ant distribution that
is augmented with common extension libraries. None of the options you
list make this particularly clean and easy to manage.

Ant 1.6 or higher hunts for its jars on three places:
${ant.home}/lib, ${user.home}/.ant/lib and the
directory specified by -lib option of ant laumching
script. So from Ant 1.6 I do copy no jars in
${ant.home}/lib; instead I place them in
${user.home}/.ant/lib. This ease me when I change
ant/jdk version I work with.
