I´ll do that - but your attachement didn´t come through.
Can you send the patch to external.xml inline?

Only tasks which are part of the Ant distro are listed there and I think
we shouldn´t change that.

Your tasks are bundled in its own jar, whith its own website (maybe with its
own AntLib descriptor). So the link on /external is enough. Doco to your
is part of your distro and your website.
- Ant doesn´t have to maintain the changes
- You´re faster on changes
- You´re development cycle is independent from Ant´s one
- It´s according to several other tasklibs (xmltask, ant-contrib, ...)

You keep control of the source, binaries and docs. You provide the website
We only add the link on external-page.

It won´t be.
