Subject Ant behaviour on duplicate targets
Date Mon, 06 Dec 1999 16:13:53 GMT
[To add to the chorus about the broken build, doesn't adding xereces.jar
to ant's classpath dependencies ripple to updating all of jakarta's
scripts that use ant?]

I noticed that ant's build.xml has multiple "dist" targets, and was
wondering what the intended behaviour ought to be. Should it
 1. Flag an error.
 2. Merge the tasks and dependencies in some fashion.

My preference is for #1.

At this point ant's behaviour is just surprising, it uses only the last
targets tasks.
