Description Paul Mclachlan 2003-10-13 16:05:29 UTC
Basically, I've added the capability for <uptodate> to have a nested
<sequential> task that only gets executed if the targets are out of date.  At
present I have to create a whole other <target> to do the dependency check so
that the primary target and have an unless="blah.uptodate".

This would make my ant script have fewer 'unnecessary' targets & seems like a
good idea.  (To me, anyway).

Apprently ant-contrib has this already.
