"Actually there is none" - isn't that somewhat of an overstatement, 
give all the info on

That page says, among other things:

"Contribute Code or Documentation Patches 

"In this role, you participate in the actual development of the code. If
this is the type of role you'd like to play, here are some steps (in
addition to the ones above) to get you started: 

  Read Guidelines 
  Review Reference Library 
  Download the Source Code 
  Access CVS Repository 
  Contribute Patches "

Actually there is none.

You describe what your tasks do and why you think they should be part of
Ant - as opposed to being a project of its own.  An alternative is to
place them in an Ant library in the new antlibs subproject of Ant.

Basically you'll have to convince Ant's committers that your tasks are
needed.  We are already dealing with a bunch of tasks that have been
abandoned by the initial contributors and can't get fully supported by
the committers.  So be warned, there is a big reluctance against adding
new tasks.
