  Hum ... actually I don't hate ant, I just think XML for this is weird
to say the least, but I'm fine with the end of the sentence !
  BTW since you now have the house keys (i.e. commit access) feel free
to push the new code to git

   http://libvirt.org/git/?p=libvirt-java.git;a=summary

  since Jim Meyering also converted the old CVS repo and pushed the
new tree on libvirt.org.
  Now I need to update the java bindings page,
