You shouldn't resolve any of these bugs in bugzilla before the patches
have actually been applied to Ant's code base - you lose visibility to
the committers.

The main problem with many of the optional SCM tasks (among others) is
that no single Ant committer (still) has an environment around to
actually test it.

What we have now is your patch and your word that it works - and the
only test we have ourselves would be "it compiles".  If you could any
other Starteam user to test your patched version, it would help

Even then, you'd be bound to waiting for the next Ant release, which
may be several months away even if your patches were applied

A Starteam Antlib that could be released separately from Ant would be
the best option, but we'd have a hard time getting this released for
the same reasons that you have a hard time finding anybody to apply
your patch - no current committer could test the code.
