Subject Re: [general] Do we need to support Ant based builds?
Date Wed, 22 Sep 2004 20:52:48 GMT
If jakarta-commons and jakarta-commons-sandbox decide to abandon Ant
based builds, then you're going to need someone else to volunteer to
run the nightly builds.  That may not be a bad thing on its own merits
(it should really be running on supported Apache hardware instead of
my Linux desktop), but I'm not going to have time to deal with the
intricacies of Maven for this particular purpose.
