The ant folks have two scripts for Gump (bootstrap.bat and
that build Ant with minimal dependencies so Gump can (portably) call that to
get the builder. (Please see: With
that minimal one Gump can then build the basic projects, and then build Ant
proper using it's dependencies. This is a nice step since it ensures that
the Ant used is latest, so acts as a test for Ant asn wel las the Ant built
projects. Something similar for NAnt would be wonderful.

I was (also) refering to the 'assemblies' from the previous projects being
passed to the currently being built one.

Just wanting to tell if NAnt fail to build something (e.g. compile error due
to underlying change).

This was really just to publish them to a repository, and pass them to
dependent projects. I wasn't sure if anything else was needed.
