> I wanted to run the ant testcases using the maven-surefire-plugin (I actually built all
the ant jars using maven).
> The problem is that the plugin sets a system property basedir that ant cannot override.
Since the BuildFileTest s are heavily dependent upon this property that ant normally sets
to be the directory of the build file, most tests fail ...
> Here a patch adding the possibility not to set the basedir by setting a configuration
attribute omitbasedir to true. 
> The pom.xml of maven-surefile-plugin was also missing a dependency to surefire-api (or
at least I needed to add this to build properly).
> Regards,
> Antoine
