Subject [VOTE] Ant source tree reorganization
Date Tue, 18 May 2010 02:11:40 GMT
Should the Ant source tree (src/main/ and perhaps also src/tests/) be split into subtrees?

[ ] No, leave it the way it is - one big tree, using <selector> to conditionally compile
pieces and route classes to various JARs.

[ ] Yes, split it into subtrees, where each tree maps to an output JAR, may have its own classpath,
and is compiled completely or not at all.

And while we're at it:

Should ant.jar and ant-nodeps.jar be consolidated?

[ ] No, leave these as two JAR outputs (and two subtrees if the first proposal is accepted).

[ ] Yes, merge them into one ant.jar (and one subtree " " " " " "), to include all tasks and
types with no linkage-level deps on 3rd-party libraries (even if there is an 
implicit dep on a 3rd-party tool such as Perforce), and remove the "Core" vs. "Optional" distinction
in the manual.

(Could prepare these changes on a branch if people would rather look at the result before
