added idea of java1.5 distro; moved some others around.

  These are the features that hold the build; fallbacks to be listed. To add something here
you must be prepared to implement it, or know someone who is. Everything needs a name.
   * SVN support by exec [stefan]
-  * Security on <libraries>, document task. [stevel]
+  * <libraries>: maven2, security. [stevel]
   * Local variables in macrodef
   * Fix for key IDE bugs (see eclipse, netbeans bugzillas) [all]
   * flatten in libraries to WAR/EAR somehow (related to <libraries>) [stevel?]
   * <classloader> to allow adding of jars to the current classloader (would solve a
''lot'' of problems at the cost of some issues)
-  * tests for <apt>, make sure the task works properly. 
+  * tests for <apt>, make sure the task works properly; force fork=true.

   * Java1.5 environment fetching. Ideally as part of a rework of Execute.getProcessEnv()
   * Doc improvements.
   * <propertyfile> in java tasks for loading properties straight from a file.
-  * reduce number of outstanding bugzilla ''bugs'' by fixing them.
+  * reduce number of outstanding bugzilla ''bugs'' by fixing them or declaring WONTFIX/Invalid.
   * reduce number of outstanding bugzilla ''enhancements'' by implementing some, or closing
them off.
   * include fetch.xml in redist package
   * add FileCollections (for arbitrary groups of files) and retrofit to appropriate tasks

   * <libraries>: multi repository support a la maven.
   * security hardening. "locking down...or giving the opportunity to lock down; e.g. secure
class loading, working with digital certs, etc..." Rated as 'like' because of the difficulty.
   * Look at all SCM tasks and pull in pending patches for new features. Find people to test
+  * Lightweight Java1.5 distro without Xerces. 
+ === ''Like'' Features Implemented ===
   * rename junit.jar to junit-3.8.1 in SCM, for <libraries> integration. As this is
only in lib/optional, effects should be minimal (i.e. rename wont be visible to end users)
-  * <issigned> to do signature checking (identify signatory). Code could be shared
w/ librarie's isSigned policy

  == WONTFIX ==
  Definitely not in this release. Pull stuff down here when scrubbed from the previous lists.
+  * <issigned> to do signature checking (identify signatory). fundamentally impossible.
