I have added an idea for a Google Summer of Code (GSOC) project to work on improving the Eclipse Ant integration by facilitating Ant buildfile refactorings.
To see some ideas of the refactorings that could be supported have a look at bug 89938.
For information on Ant, check out the Apache Ant site.
Learning about the inner workings of Eclipse and Ant are skills that would help out any student. Adding the refactoring support would make you the friend of Build Meisters and Releng wizards everywhere. These are very good people to be friends with :-)
The deadline for GSOC applications is April 7, 5:00 PM PDT /00:00 UTC April 8, 2008.
The FAQ for GSOC can be found here.
So please consider submitting to work on the Ant integration enhancement or any of the other Eclipse based ideas.
