Like pretty much every open source project, Ant/Apache uses CVS
<>. Sporadic documentation exists around the web - the
best IMO is The CVS Book <> by one of the original
CVS coders.

On contributing source code: unless/until you become a committer
<>, your only outlet is this
mailing list. Send code diffs, patches, bug reports, etc. directly to the list.
Also, remember that for most open source developers, this is not their day job.
If they seem to be ignoring you, they're probably not; just pester them/us
gently. (Just for the record, I am not an Ant committer.)

Hope that helps.

Do you want to delete an entire directory or just the files within the
directory? In other words, are you looking for 'rm -rf foo*.*' or 'find . -name
foo*.* | xargs -r rm -f'?
