Subject [POLL] Bug 48804
Date Fri, 23 Apr 2010 09:29:16 GMT
Hi all,

currently extension-point and import don't play together like they are
supposed to.  You can't extend an imported extension point with a target
from the importing build file (which is the primary use-case, really).

Attached to this bug is a patch that fixes the problem (including an
AntUnit test that fails in 1.8.0).

The same patch breaks a different AntUnit test, namely
testExtensionPointMustBeKnown in extension-point-test.xml.  This test
asserts that you can't extend an extension point from the same build
file before that extension point has been defined.  I.e. you can't do

  <target name="bar" extensionOf="foo"/>
  <extension-point name="foo"/>

Personally I think the changed behavior isn't a bad thing, the old
behavior isn't documented and we shouldn't even try to keep it.

What do you think?


PS: I'd love to see this fixed with Ant 1.8.1.
