I'm sorry if your patches did not get committed. That happens. We are all
busy people doing our day jobs, etc etc - I won't bore you with the
minutiae. Sometimes submissions get overlooked.

As for the code in question, the last post you made on the subject, that I
can find, is

Now, I'll admit that was a long time ago but it didn't quite sound to me
that your were finished. You might also guess that around this time we were
pretty busy building, testing and managing the release.

BTW, I wasn't always a committer :-) I guess that if I had just gone away,
I still wouldn't be.

If you want to submit the tasks again, I think they should be considered. I
won't commit them myself. I have been doing most of my Ant development on
NT till now (although I will be changing after the 1.4 release), so I can't
really add much value to testing these particular tasks. That makes it
difficult to do a proper job reviewing them.

Another approach is to add these things to bugzilla, so they will remain on
the list until someone acknowledges them. Both approaches are valid.

As I said, it is your choice.
