Subject Help on submitting a patch to ant
Date Wed, 15 Jun 2005 21:40:23 GMT
Hello,

As you properly know the junit task there are some classloading
problems. 
See
http://ant.apache.org/faq.html#delegating-classloader

I have made a patch that solves these classloader problems. See
http://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=6606#c22

I would like to submit the patch. But I am not sure how I do it. I have
read this http://ant.apache.org/ant_task_guidelines.html
But I still have a few questions.

*) Should I make the patch for 1.6.x or 1.7?
*) If you are not forking the junit task you still have to put junit.jar
in the system classpath. Is it OK to change the junit task so it forks a
new process for junit if junit.jar isn't present in the system
classpath? Even if people have fork="false" in the build file? Or is it
more appropriate to fail with an error message that says you have to
fork or add junit.jar to the system classpath.
*) Where is the proper place to post these questions? I have looked at
the dev@ant.apache.org archive and it does not seem to be the right
place.
