Subject submitting enhancements
Date Tue, 03 Feb 2004 16:22:13 GMT
In the case when a member of the community wants to
submit a patch to enhance some core Ant functionality,
and needs some simple helper class that may already
exist in another Apache or Jakarta project (such as
commons), AND the changes are too fundamentally
embedded in existing code to make the helper class
optional, what would be the best thing to do?

a) write a new class just for Ant (maybe refactoring
existing Ant classes along the way)
b) add a version of the other class to Ant's src
c) add the other project as a dependency

...what, if any, additional caveats should be observed
in whichever is deemed the correct choice?
