Subject [VOTE] workspace/subbuild issues
Date Thu, 12 Apr 2001 07:09:38 GMT
* create the concept of workspace so that projects can be built in a
  DAG and thus enable projects like catalina/tomcat to have an easy
  build process. It also helps CJAN to a lesser degree and would
  partially solve the JARs in CVS thing.

* Project inheritance

  /for Stephane's explanation see 

* Target inheritance. ie The ability to include targets from other 
  project files overidining them as necessary (so cascading project

* Add an attribute to <ant> to feed back the environment (properties and
  taskdefs) from the child build to the parent.

* Allow a target to depend on a target which is in another buildfile.  

* Allow a target to reference properties defined in another buildfile.
