Subject Possible Enhancements to <description> datatype
Date Thu, 29 Apr 2004 08:00:46 GMT
a) description element should allow every attribute and every markup inside.
b) description element should be usable inside macrodef, presetdef and 
any container task like sequential.

a) und b) will not be processed by ant (simply ignored). text nodes will 
be processed only.

What can be done with that things:
With this enhancements it is possible to add markup to description 
elements related to a target documentation system or a special ant doc 
markup like javadoc has.
This seems to be necessary since macrodef makes reusable ant files 
possible. Descriptions have to be more than a remark now.
The enhancements above make it possible to build a Automated 
Documentation System for Ant like JavaDoc for Java.

What do you think?
