The Apache Ant™ Libraries Subproject
Apache Ant Libraries - or Antlibs for short
With Apache Ant 1.6.0 and the ant libraries concept creating libraries of Ant tasks that are easy to get dropped into an existing Ant installation has become far easier.
The Ant Libraries subproject was started as a place to develop small libraries of tasks that can get released independent of Ant's release schedule - which is necessary for nascent Ant tasks since Ant's own release schedule has become rather slow over time.
The subproject also offers a sandbox as playground for Ant committers to try new ideas for tasks.
