Subject RE: [VOTE] Accept EasyAnt as a subproject - take 2
Date Thu, 28 Feb 2013 10:03:09 GMT

I didn't know that EasyAnt is still alive. EasyAnt might be exactly what we are looking for
in a solution to modularize our build system and software. Some questions:

Is there a more up-to-date documentation than the one at
skimming through (and besides there a quite a few obvious mistakes in it) it seems to refer
to a release prior to 0.9.

Also: How large is the community of EasyAnt, are there any references for software projects
using it? (I tried to get an idea for that by searching for EasyAnt on stackoverflow, but
that didn't turn out well.) 

Thanks a lot
Tim Enderling
