Subject Re: Tiny patch to enable Recursion in Ant
Date Wed, 28 May 2008 04:40:04 GMT
sorry for the delay, a combination of a whole lot of work, a broken
iBook, very nice weather and severe back pain (not necessarily in that
order) have kept me offline.

First of all your original mail didn't contain the patch itself.

Second you said you used ant-contrib's for and I pointed out that
subant should be enough.  The only thing that's missing is a property
that knows the current target, isn't it?

I know we have rejected the idea of such a property in the past, but
we may be at a different point today, so if you open an enhancement
request for such a property (or find the old one and reopen it), that
would e the right place to attach a patch to enable it.
