Subject Re: AW: ant xdocs!

If you mean you're a future "tool vendor" in that you'll be writing 
your own custom 3rd party tasks, thats not quite what I meant.  Or are 
you working on something bigger than that?

As for task writers - the xdocs idea is not something they need to be 
too concerned with - the @tags to utilize are minimal on purpose.  The 
straightforward tasks, in fact, would not require any @tags at all.  
Only ones with exceptions like setters that are not to be exposed or a 
task name mapping that is different need tags to affect the generation 

With <antdoclet> part of XDoclet now, the tool is available to 
everyone.  Whether the module eventually should live with Ant or with 
XDoclet is up for discussion of course, but later :)
