Largely because xdoclet fails to build.

Well, it is against Gump's declared purpose to use them.

"You guys" includes you, Antoine, as all Apache committers have commit
access to the Gump repository.

I'd propose to set up a second xdocs project with the xdoclet
dependencies replaced by <work> entries for the jars in Ant's CVS.
That new project would build and the old will not as long as XDoclet
doesn't build, but will use the latest XDoclet once it builds again.

ant.home is the location of the freshly compiled Ant, it get's set in
the Gump descriptor.
