Subject RE: what I want to see in the next version of ant
Date Mon, 22 Jul 2002 22:13:30 GMT
Beside Costin, I don't remember anyone saying he/she wouldn't want to
consider switching code base entirely (but among the sea of posts, I could
have missed them of course). Most committers admit they haven't even had
time to look in depth at either proposals (now single proposal). Some said
they don't believe in starting from scratch, but seeing is believing, so let
us start by looking at the remaining proposal... The heightened scrutiny
will undoubtedly show its strengths and weaknesses (and whether it's
over-engineered as some proclaimed). Then decide which route is better, i.e.
evolve Ant 1.x or Myrmidon into Ant2.

And after all, people who worked on the proposals are not complete whackos,
but most likely very talented coders, and well aware of the Ant 1.x code
base. I think their hard work deserves it. --DD

I'm sorry but from what I can see there is no chance that mutant or myrmidon
can be used as the 'base code' without strong consequences on the ant
community. I think Stefan made it quite clear last time.
