Description (last modified by oranfry) (diff)

As far as I know, all that is needed to run an ant project is ant.jar plus classes for any extra tasks in the project. We could ship Greenstone3 with just the ant.jar file (1MB) instead of the whole package (40MB), which would reduce the download and install sizes quite a lot.

Got rid of a few things from the apache-ant-1.7.0-bin.zip file on www.greenstone.org package and managed to cut it down from 11 MB to 4 MB, so closing this bug. This got the download size from 104 MB to 97 MB (based off the GNU/Linux release).
