Subject Re: [Avalon Packages -> Commons] We want to move packages to Commons: can you help? [Commons-Avalon]

Hang on though,

The jars checked into ant's cvs (xerces etc, junit) are all built by ant at
one stage or another anyway, so why not just take the same approach step by
step:

1) Merge the code into o.a.c.codec.zip/tar/bzip or whereever
2) Make a release
3) Make ant depend on the released jar

This probably won't be a problem as it won't affect Ant 1.5 (too close) and
could easily be done in time for ant 1.6 (ages away I expect).  Ant (and
IMHO most projects) shouldn't be depending on anything but released code
anyway.
