Subject Where next: 1.7.2 or 1.8.0?
Date Tue, 28 Oct 2008 05:15:10 GMT

the current trunk doesn't contain many big or risky changes, the
biggest new things probably are the changed PropertyHelper[1],
FileProvider and local properties.  I seriously consider adding the
changes made by the EasyAnt proposal.

OTOH trunk contains a bunch of bug fixes that are not in 1.7.1, some
of them serious.

My personal query for open bugs outside of the SCM tasks currently
contains about 170 bugzilla issues and I'd like to get that count down
considerably before the next release.

I guess I'm asking whether you feel it would be worth to make the
extra effort of merging the bug fixes to te 1.7.x branch because we
anticipate a 1.7.2.  If so, I'd rather do it soon before the number of
things to merge gets even bigger.

I'm not asking for a release manager at all, just for opinions.

    the AntXtras code was too convoluted for a quick analysis
