Package: testng
Version: 6.8.8-3
Severity: important


  While trying to compile testng, I encountered the following build failure:

[INFO] Scanning for projects...
[INFO] ------------------------------------------------------------------------
[INFO] Building TestNG
[INFO]    task-segment: [package]
[INFO] ------------------------------------------------------------------------

1) org.apache.ant:ant:jar:debian

  Try downloading the file manually from the project website.

    Then, install it using the command: 
      mvn install:install-file -DgroupId=org.apache.ant -DartifactId=ant 
-Dversion=debian -Dpackaging=jar -Dfile=/path/to/file

    Alternatively, if you host your own repository you can deploy the file 
      mvn deploy:deploy-file -DgroupId=org.apache.ant -DartifactId=ant 
-Dversion=debian -Dpackaging=jar -Dfile=/path/to/file -Durl=[url] 

    Path to dependency: 
      1) org.testng:testng:jar:6.8.8
      2) org.apache.ant:ant:jar:debian

1 required artifact is missing.

Adding a build dependency on ant, solved the issue for me.

Right, just verified that on sid porterbox and indeed ant gets pulled in.

Closing the report, as it seems to be just a local issue.
