Subject Location of meta files??
Date Fri, 01 Jun 2001 07:07:57 GMT

was there any conclusion about location of meta-info files for ant
librarys? There was talk of a separate directory like ANT-INF/ or TSK-INF/
and there was also talk of using "META-INF/services/org.apache.ant/" like
newer APIs seem to. Is there any opinion on which is better alternative?

The 2nd is probably more standard in long term but the first is easier for
average peeps to grok off the bat. Especially if ant library results could
be stored in jars that may contain other "services" as well.
