Subject Re: Ant 1.9.0
Date Tue, 19 Feb 2013 01:08:19 GMT

I am currently looking at the test failures of Ant under linux with Oracle JDK 1.6 here [1].

These tests are referenced from the Nightly+ Continuous Builds page [2] under Apache Ant -
Core Trunk (Linux)

It looks like the OS/JVM combination does not read properly the XML entities or the non-ascii
characters in the build files.

I would like to fix this so that we have a set of green lights before doing the release.

If someone has some ideas on the root cause of the test failures and the best way to address
that I am interested.

Also I did not look yet at the FindBugs build configuration which is also failing.
