already-working Ant tasks, and we agreed to move RCS the project to the

The reason why the project isn't visible on the web page is because (despite
the project having been donated over a year ago) I'm still new to the place,
and I lack the time to learn the Jakarta way of publishing stuff (if you
look at my web site, you'll probably find it "spartan", to say the least).
