Subject proposed: ant build contest
Date Wed, 03 Jul 2002 13:55:32 GMT

Dear Folks,

I'd like to propose an Ant 'build-off' contest. 

Contest Goals:

1) showcase best-practice use of Ant and related tools
2) glory for developers
3) develop ready-made build environments
4) provide insight for further development

1,2,4 are pretty obvious.  
3 might be also, but let me explain -
It takes a lot of work to put together a fun development 
environment complete with Ant/jdepend/import scrubber/
cruise control/alexandria/junit/gargoyle software's 
RecursiveTestSuite, etc.  Wouldn't it be great 
if you had the option of downloading someone else's 
pre-configured model build env.?

The Contest:

run every 4 months, Judges would select 2-3 build problems 
of different types of applications and different scales. 

Contestants would be given all source, etc., and have 2 weeks
to respond.  Contestants would be judged on the how 
completely they exploit ant and related tools to create a 
developer friendly build environment.  The Champion would 
receive honorable mention on Ant homepage for 4 months.  3 
time winners would enter a hall of champions, etc.
