Subject New Optional Tasks
Date Wed, 24 Apr 2002 23:39:51 GMT

I am curious what is the process of offering new optional tasks to be 
included in Ant? What are the guidelines and criteria?

What I have in mind is a couple of tasks that are a part of WOProject 
[ ]. They deal with support of java 
projects that use WebObjects [] from NeXT/Apple. 
WebObjects (even though living in obsurity in the mainstream Java world) 
is one of the best application servers out there. It has rather big (and 
growing) dedicated community of developers. "Officially" WebObjects 
projects are built using Makefiles. Ant is a savior in this area just 
like in many other places.

Since Ant has quiet a few tasks that work with products from commercial 
vendors, I thought it would be appropriate to suggest WOProject tasks 
for inclusion. Most tasks are in production state already, some will be 
there soon. WOProject current license is a copy of Apache License, so 
there is no problems on this side either.

Before WOProject team finalizes the new release, I'd like to know what 
is involved in making this an optional ant task.
