Owen O'Malley commented on ZOOKEEPER-110:
-----------------------------------------

Basically, the saveVersion script creates a Java source file that defines a 
package level attribute. There is a utility class that looks for the attribute 
and uses it if it is available. I took that approach so that the project 
compiles and runs, even if the script was not run to generate the version 
information.


> Build script relies on svnant, which is not compatible with subversion 1.5 
> working copies

> The current build.xml ant script uses svnant to obtain the latest revision 
> number from the repo, however svnant is not compatible with subversion 1.5 
> (http://subversion.tigris.org/svn_1.5_releasenotes.html), and so the build 
> fails with working copies checked out by this version.  The build fails with 
> "this version of subversion is too old, please get a newer version..."  This 
> will become more apparent as svn 1.5 trickles out; I'm using a brand new dev 
> environment with both subclipse 1.4 and svn 1.5 client, so I got bit rather 
> quickly.
> Those with svn 1.5 can get the code from the trunk, but cannot do an ant 
> build.
> svnant hasn't been updated in more than a year and appears to be dead, so it 
> may no longer be a viable tool for the ant build.
