Subject Re: How to have Dynamic Propert in ant

Properties are immutable in Ant.  In your example, even if properties were 
mutable, the timestamp would not be recomputed - you'd have to re-execute 
the tstamp task.  The only way you can have this recomputation is by using 
a second property as someone else has responded...
