Subject Project description includes target descriptions
Date Wed, 17 Mar 2004 05:35:10 GMT
There has been a thread on the Ant user group concerning the 
<description> element that really should be addressed in this list.

In Ant 1.6.x, oata.types.Description explicity checks all Targets in a 
project for a <description> element and adds those descriptions to the 
Project description. I posted bug 27722, which contains a couple of 
patches that to me at least, do what I'd expect the <description> 
element to do. Instead of adding the descriptions for all targets to the 
Project description, the patch for Description only adds the description 
element from the implicit target. The patch for Target appends the text 
of any child <description> to the text of any description set for that 
Target with the 'description' attribute.

This seems to be in keeping with the API docs for Target.

Thanks for looking into this.
