Welcome, Pedro.

AFAIK there is no feature anybody would be actively working on.  Ant's
development has been reactive to bug reports and feature requests for
quite some time.  So one idea might be to look through the Bugzilla
issues to see whether anything sounds interesting to you.

Personally I'm a bit concerned whether the changes coming in Java9 in
particular the new module system is going to interfere with the way Ant
works.  This is something I'd love to investigate once I find enough
time - if I ever find time, that is.
