Subject Re: Ant 1.9.0

We've discussed this before[1] and already voted in favour of removing 
the commercial tasks from Ant some time ago[2]. A complication was that 
we wanted to create AntLibs for them if we couldn't get the vendors to 
support them directly so that there was minimal upset for our users, but 
apart from the VSS tasks that didn't happen. I did contact all the 
vendors at the time but I got virtually no response. The only company 
that did respond, as I recall, was Perforce. Perhaps that is why they 
now provide decent tasks themselves.

So this is one instance where what we wanted to happen has happened. +1 
to removing the tasks, with a document redirect on where to get the 
tasks now.
