Subject [GitHub] ant issue #54: Let’s use Ivy (properly!) and drop Maven Ant tasks, Commons...
Date Wed, 27 Dec 2017 17:00:29 GMT
Github user twogee commented on the issue:
    I would like to point out one distinction: I would like to replace the stuff that works
(sort of) with **less** stuff that does the same job, and hopefully more. Besides, my beef
with Maven Ant tasks was that they morphed into Aether Ant tasks, and then Maven Resolver
Ant tasks and changed syntax along the way, and I couldn't add Bintray using Maven Ant tasks
(at least in a nontrivial way).
    `buildoxspackage` is a requested feature, and it does no harm to keep it, albeit in a
simple native implementation.
    The point with `signit.xml` is that Ivy does it all in one go with `upload.xml` and with
less stuff in `ivy.xml`
    I can change `fetch.xml` so that release conf goes into a separate place, and so Ivy +
BouncyCastle are kept out of sight (unlike Maven Ant tasks).
