Subject Re: [PATCH] exec with include/exclude
Date Mon, 17 Jul 2000 09:37:53 GMT
Mariusz, you are right that this functionality should be available to
users ASAP, just a few notes.

The most pressing need for a new release is that there are so many
bugfixes/enhancements against the last official version (from _March_)
that we want the users to be aware of. "Modern compile" springs to
mind as well as many other things.

I really want to have this kind of release _now_.

If we are going to wait for the things from our TODO lists to be
implemented - well even if I could spend as much time on Ant as I
devote right now much longer (which I probably can't), I could go
coding for weeks before I'd even see the end of this list.

As for the Exec with matching task behavior thingie. I've switched my
priorities a little - as I seem to be less overwhelmed with real life
work than Thomas, I'm going to focus on changing the Exec inerts

Of course we could provide a first shot on the modified Exec task
(using the current Exec and applying your patch) very fast. I'm
certain I could build a version that sits on top of the new framework
by the end of this week - do you think a delay of a few days would be
important enough to commit an intermediate solution (this is by no
means a rhetoric question)?
