Subject Action List - Volunteers Needed
Date Sun, 09 Dec 2001 03:02:20 GMT

Yesterdat I finally got around to looking at the list of actions that can be 
done to get us towards Ant2. Unfortunately the majority of things I had in 
mind were to controvertial so I had to axe them ;) However this list includes 
a bunch of things todo and as soon as we make some headway into that I can 
probably start bringing some items onto the list. 

The list of items is available at

So if you want to get your name in the lights or maybe just help out feel 
free to volunteer to document/implement/etc some of the actions. Some of 
these actions are largish chunks of work so feel free to work together, work 
incrementally, "borrow" ideas/code from comptabile projects etc.

Most of these actions can be linked to specific email threads but I haven't 
done that because my local mail archive is limited. If some one was to look 
through the online mail archives and link the actions to specific threads 
then that would be much appreciated.

Anyways. The best thing to do is to just get started and try out some of 
these things. Try to do your experimentation in a new package (say 
org.apache.ant.experimental.<blah>) and keep us informed of your progress. 
Try to also have a simple ant build file or maybe just a code snippet (if you 
are working on making reusable utils) so we can have a look at it all.

Feel free to ask if you want more info on any of the actions ;) and have a 
bit of fun hacking at the items.
