I have put a snapshot there:
Maybe an entry in the bugzilla will better fit ?

Note that the build won't work as it is relying on other resources which are 
in the original svn, resources which have nothing to do with that groovy 
frontend. I was a quick and experimental build. I'll make a proper and 
standalone build after the import.

Note also that I didn't changed the package name, module id in the ivy.xml, 
etc... They are still some org.hibnet.gant. I'll change that too after the 
import to be org.apache.ant.groovyfront so there won't be any name conflict 
with the actual gant [1].

I have something ready to be posted. It would grant the software 
called "Groovy Front" if it is ok.
