Re: A Seemingly pointless target

I'm guessing someone thought that if they depend'ed lots of other targets on this one, and the 'if' wasn't satisfied, then those other targets wouldn't get run. But I don't think that's the way Ant behaves. But Ant never works how I expect, even after years of banging my head against it... so I'd have to try a mock/demo project (full of echo tasks) to really see what was happening. So that's just my guess.
