Subject Re: [PATCH] ant1.4B2 - property task, added override value support
Date Tue, 11 Sep 2001 10:34:12 GMT
This is something that we'll have to revisit, when we talk about
property scoping in Ant2.  

So far my understanding is that most committers (including myself)
think that the property definition that comes first should win in
general - that is users defining properties on the command line can be
sure that nothing inside the scripts can alter the values they define.

It may be OK to allow overrides (marking a <property> as defining a
default value or something) but not to enforce them.
