I don't see how you can say that placing Ant 1.x in 'maintenance mode' is 
happening already. There is *NO* work at the moment on Ant 2.0 as a 
separate sanctioned item, there is no CVS repository, etc.

Giving it a new name with the same codebase doesn't address the existing 
documented requirements in a specific way. I see no push underway to take 
the Ant 2.0 requirements documents and plan for those to be integrated 
into the code base. I can see a lot of people's favourite small addition 
to 1.x being added to the tree.
