As it sounds like it's not going to be included I guess this is will be a purely academic exercise.

In any case where, I'll put the task in src/main/org/apache/tools/ant/taskdefs/optional, but
where do I put the xdocs?

A bigger problem is that I don't have write access to the repository so when I do "cvs add"
so it can generate a diff file, it won't
let me.

cvs [server aborted]: "add" requires write access to the repository

there is in the ant task guidelines


If something lives in sforge, we are usually happy for it to stay there,
with doc links from the ant web site and docs. So if you edit the
appropriate files in xdocs, submit the changes as a PATCH we'll point to
Unless you can convince us it is so compelling and critical to all ant users
that we should take on the maintenance and support, which will be hard.
