I applaude this effort :-)

Maybe you know the Depot project in the Incubator... well, we are
closing it for lack of development. I should have known better, but we
always learn something.

In any case, there is some code there that you may want to
grab-use-whatever, or even grab it all and use it in Ant. It's already
in Apache, so you an just go there and grab it.

There are also Ant tasks.
