Should have placed a smiley in there? You know I've not been serious I
Just to clarify a few things.
Ant itself is pure Java and there are nightly snapshots which should
make Andreas' work a little bit easier.
Ant itself is under the Apache License so it should be compatible with
Debian - or don't you ship Apache itself with the distribution?
But then Ant will need a JAXP compliant parser
<http://java.sun.com/xml>. I'm not sure about the license of the JAXP
reference implementation - I think you are free to distribute jaxp.jar
and parser.jar but I'm not sure. The other option is Xerxes
<http://xml.apache.org> which again ships under the Apache license.
To anybody who wants to install Ant I'd urge you not to take whatever
is called a release, use the latest snapshot. There have been some
important patches lately and a whole bunch of additional patches is
waiting to be commited.
Let's just wait a few days, there seems to be heavy activity right now
(and Apache voting rules look silly to the uninitiated so expect lots
of mails containing nothing but a +1 in the body if you happen to
follow the mailing list).
I'll happily send my build.xml file for freetds_jdbc to anybody
