I've subscribed, thanks.

If you could help us fill out t his page with information on how to work with Nant, that'd
be great. We really want to:

1) Run a script to build NAnt (kinda like the script)
2) Use the newly built NAnt to build the rest of Nant-dom (i.e. OSS project using NAnt).

If you could help populate the page with these, I could write the Python (Gump) code to perform
the actions.

If we don't get past this for a while we can atleast try on a M$ platform.

Hmm, I'm no license expert. I'll ask other Gumpers for input here.

Let me know if I need to answer more questions.
