Yep -- this was intermediate. My first item last night was to get the code
moved over. It was already late, so the only thing I did was modify the
scripts so that things worked -- but even as I mod'd them I grimaced as a
real solution needs to be taken. You've hit it right on the head.

I wanted to post a message (ya beat me to it! :) about ant.jar -- I think
that we should do that and change the scripts accordingly.

We also have to decide if we are going to move in projectx-tr2.jar into the
workspace as well. I'm ok with that.

Yep. Needs to be changed.

No, not really. Moo is a seperate beast and shouldn't ship with Ant.

First real post -- I've got 4 or so in ahead of you testing things out... :)
