Subject RE: Hosting new Ant2 repository with SubVersion!?!?
Date Wed, 24 Jul 2002 14:40:29 GMT
I'm +1 on exploring SubVersion - but not for the ant2.

What about the optional task collections for a start ? That's a place
where we can benefit from a more flexible mechanism.

+1 on starting the ant2 in org.apache.ant, in the main branch, by 
adding the best ideas out of proposals and the main branch ( with
 one vote per interface / features and enough discussion on each )

going to fit in with the other projects? I dare say that SubVersion is better than CVS in
many respects, but keeping with a certain amount of uniformity has many benefits too.
