[Spread-users] [PATCH] Fix XML syntax error in build.xml Ant file

When the 3.17.0 source code tarball was rolled, the src.java.dir
property was changed to point from the CVS location to the source
tarball tree location.  This change introduced a XML syntax error,
making it impossible for Ant to build the Java code.  Here's the
output of the error:


file:/home/dlr/truckee1/src/support/spread/tmp/spread-src-3.17.0/java/build.xml:20: Use "&lt;" for "<" in attribute values.

Total time: 4 seconds

Here's the fix:

+++ java/build.xml	Fri Sep 27 15:55:44 2002

IMO, this should be corrected in the tarball sitting on the web site
for download.  As that tarball already differed from the source in CVS
on this line, correcting the change is the Right Thing to do.
