Why not build scripts for all the jakarta projects?
You have lots of projects and lots of dependencies.

I was also thinking that there is a lot of talk about scipts a methods of solving build problems.
But there are very few examples of the problems the developers were trying to solve with the

services provided by ant.

Why not provide a set of examples of scripts that solve different problems.

I am willing to submit some examples of how I solved my build problems to kick this off.
