What is Greebo?
Greebo is an ant task for managing non-source files that a project requires.
It is current achievement is the management and transfer of jar files that a project uses,
in a maven-like fashion.
What is the current status of Greebo?
Currently, it can use maven's project.xml and maven-like repositories.
It is also possible to use a flat (i.e. all files in the same directory) repository with Greebo.
In the future, we are planning to abstract Greebo from maven-based stuff, and separate its core
from Ant and make a library of its own that could be used in any type of build environment.
What do I need to run Greebo?
Current version requires Ant 1.5 and JDK 1.4.x, but in the future, we'll only require
support for JDK 1.2.x and up.
What does "Greebo" mean?
Greebo is the name of a cat from the Discworld novels of Terry Pratchett. There are
mainly two reasons for me giving this name: 1) I suck at giving names
2) Jakarta project's logo always reminded me of him.
