OK. I think I understand what you are trying to do. I would suggest
using the <for> task, rather than the <foreach> task, because the <for>
task has a keepgiong attribute.

Here is a solution that works for me.

<target name="looptest">
 <for list="${name.list}" param="sourceappname" keepgoing="true">
   <sequential>
     <antcall target="call-second" inheritall="true">
       <param name="sourceappname.a" value="@{sourceappname}"/>
     </antcall>
   </sequential>
 </for>
</target>

<target name="call-second">
 <input message="Do you want to deploy ${sourceappname.a}?"
validargs="y,n" addproperty="user.selection"/>
 <condition property="do.abort">
   <equals arg1="n" arg2="${user.selection}"/>
 </condition>

 <fail if="do.abort"> ******* You have chosen not to deploy
${sourceappname.a}. *****</fail>
 <echo>Deploying ${sourceappname.a}</echo>
 <!-- tasks to deploy the app -->
</target>
