Subject <subant> with genericantfile changes basedir !
Date Thu, 17 Nov 2005 14:51:33 GMT
Hi --

I have a number of <ant> sub-projects that I wish to call.  I call them 
with the same ant build file.  I have a number of directories such as
representing all the languages I need to build for.  And I use the 
<dirset> element of <subant> to pluck out each language, "en", "fr", 
"es", etc.

I'm also using the genericantfile attribute in <subant> to specify the 
name of the build file.

What is happening is that genericantfile sets the basedir to something 
like src/localization/en, whereas I really want it to remain as it was, 
that is, just inherit the basedir from the project itself.

Is there a way to override the basedir?  or a better way to implement 
this task?
