I have been looking at using Ant for application deployment to multiple servers.
I see there is a known problem with ant 1.6.5 where a sshexec request
will close stdout.  This can be patched, but this problem is pretty
serious since multiple sshexec requests would be needed.
I have been looking at the documentation for SmartFrog.  Can you point
out a doc that describes the issues of deployment?
This would include distribution of build files, execution of
deployment scripts, configuration, and logging/notification?

Thanks much!
