new forum - Ant

I'm thinking that we need a new forum in the Java section called "Ant". I know that we currently talk about it a bit in the open source forum, but I think ant is big enough and has a big enough future to warrant its own forum.
Comments?

I don't think we get quite enough posts on Ant yet to give it it's own forum. We are getting pretty close though.

We could mix it with other stuff, but I now think that Ant is big enough and has a big enough future to warrant it's own forum.
Maybe it should go in the products section instead of the java section though.

I think Ant is enough different from other XP stuff that it should have its own forum. And I think it's use is growing rapidly.

I support the notion of a seperate forum on ANT

And here I thought that the Open Source Forum was fairly well devoted to Ant .

I vote that we move it to the top of the products section.

Then we should move the "Other Open Source Projects to slot 2, because they really should be by each other.
That OK?
