Not sure that I understand...

I just removed a dependency and did a default build, it complains like this:

Missing dependency.  The jar from:


should be downloaded to:


Run "ant fetch-depends" to automatically fetch dependencies.
Note: Some of Harmony's dependencies are licensed under terms other
than the Apache License v2.

Total time: 0 seconds

Then 'ant fetch-depends' went to get it for me.
(This was changed within the last three days or so.)

Yep, we have had enough code to host our own build scripts for a while
now :-)

Given that ECJ is now a dependency for our emerging javac tool, perhaps
we should make it the default in the build system too?
