------- Additional Comments From thomas.kappen@tecon-group.com  2007-03-29 00:45 -------
For all these workarounds I have to modify the scripts of the mentioned open
source software. But I would like to build the software 'out of the box',
without modifying any scripts, or to patch Ant myself. I think this is a
straight forward approach.
Further, for an occasional build, implementing a workaround means more effort
for inexperienced developers, than waiting for the downloads of javadoc.
Additionally, if a developer takes Ant as a black box, and he has set the proxy
with Java system properties or the <setptoxy> task, he expects that each task
will use the proxy settings, isn't he?

Are there any arguments against a patch? Is it too much effort for you or the
Ant team? Do you see risks or side effects?

We are talking about an additional feature. Nobody HAS to use it. Everybody has
the choice to improve the script for performance or usability.
