Then you already have our main point of testing, our unit tests (in
the src/testcases subdirectory).

As much as possible 8-)

There are no hard rules.  When a bug is discovered we prefer to have a
unit test that verifies the bug.  This one will become part of our
testsuite and ensure that we won't create the same bug again.  But
writing tests is no requirement.

As there are no rules, there is nothing to validate.

Not methodically as part if Ant itself.

Conor MacNeill has done so[1][2] over time using Clover, Stephane
Bailliez used to do so with JProbe coverage IIRC (sorry, no URL).
