Subject bad error-reporting
Date Thu, 19 Nov 2009 09:57:28 GMT

we are migrating our projects to buildr and there is often the case that we miss to copy some
folder or something is empty.

in this case rake aborts with:

Don't know how to build task ''

this error message is not very helpfull especially for the newbees around.

i played around a little bit with the messages produced in rake to at least specify the current
scope of the failure, but i was not very pleased with my approach.

is there some better way to provide a detailed error-message?

i would expect somthing like:

- Could not build forder 'src/test/java' because it does not exist -

kind regards,
