Subject Re: [jira] Commented: (FOR-145) Make Forrest able to be imported by Ant

Like you can see I did not commit it yet but made a patch due to the
possible side effects Ross e.g. mentioned.

The problem with it is that we still have the offending targets in the
ant files. e.g. If we keep
an init target (deprecated) and do not rename it, it will interfere with
other application (that as well may have an init target).

The only solution I see is to get it done and update the docu. ATM I am
building a new application for a client and I need to have full forrest
as ant. Seeing that the issue is older then 2 years, I am willing to do
the work and basic testing. 

Till we have consensus in the terms of action I will add my work to the
issue tracker as patches.
