Subject "Trying to override old definition of task" and macros
Date Thu, 03 Jan 2008 12:48:02 GMT

we get some annoying warnings from ant (verified with 1.7.1 alpha from yesterdays nightly

We have some macro definitions in a separate file, which is imported from the starting build
file and nowhere else. We proceed to import a healthy number of other ant files, with targets
calling each other across files. 

Now it seems that if often if targets are called across files we get messages "Trying to override
old definition of task" for each macro defined in the macro definition file. This is not really
a problem, except that we have tens of thousands of these messages in our logs.

Now, this seems like a bug. The macros are imported in one file once, and we shouldn't get
these messages. However, unfortunately I wasn't able to reproduce this behaviour with a small
test setup - we do use a large number of files (ant scripts, configuration files and custom
tasks) so I can't pinpoint the problem.

So the obvious question is: How do we get rid of these messages? :-)

BTW, the macro file looks like

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
	<macrodef name="name">

[more macros]
