Subject SV: [PATCH] Dynamic target
Date Thu, 02 Nov 2000 20:04:36 GMT
I'm not sure that the feature is 100% bad. I think that a feature of that
kind in combination with the script-task would make much more complex
behaviour in a build-system possible. It would for example be a very good
tool for generalizing build-files to a higher degree.

I do agree upon that the patch is to magic/implicit in it's current
manifestation. But I do see the use of such a feature in a very advanced
ant-build-implementation. (Such as my own. :-)

I agree with Stefan. This is too implicit for my liking. Specially named
targets are not a good idea, IMHO. If you did want to have this sort of
specific meaning, (and I question whether that is the case, anyway), I
think it would require a different element name such as <dynamic>.

So for now, I'm -1 on this patch.
