Subject Re: Ant 1.7 release

Hi all,

I'm not confirming yet to be release manager, but I'm preparing a  
build environment with all libs etc - so I'm edging my hat into the ring

I have all the latest libs as described in this section, but I still  
can't get a completely clean compile of the following (from within

Which tasks require this weblogic.jar? I'm getting quite a clean  
build here without it and I can't see where it's required.

Well my main (currently only personal) machine is an ageing G4  
powerbook - OSX 10.4 with Java5 (apple supplied, also have JDK1.3/1.4  
available).  I have a nice OpenBSD3.9 box in the office here and  
obviously I have access to WindowsXP sp2 machines too, so I can  
potentially test a build on 3 envs, although realistically I'd only  
build it under my main machine as the others are not setup as dev boxes.

Well I can certainly build a test release on my main machine if I can  
get all the required jars - my plan is to create a release-test build/ 
dist today and upload to my apache space if all goes well.

Thanks for the info so far
