The people who write the tasks and want to see them included with Ant
ask on the dev list (or attach them to Ant's bugzilla) and if a
committer feels like committing the task it will be done.  If the task

Most if not all of these have not been written with the intention to
include them in Ant.  The people behind the ant-contrib project are a
separate bunch of people from the Ant dev team even if some have been on
both teams at one point in time.
