Hi Alexey,

I don't have bootstrap directory anywhere under the
distribution tree.  What I have is:

   /usr/local/ant/apache-ant-1.7.0/src/etc/poms/ant
   /usr/local/ant/apache-ant-1.7.0/src/etc/testcases/taskdefs/ant
   /usr/local/ant/apache-ant-1.7.0/src/tests/junit/org/apache/tools/ant
   /usr/local/ant/apache-ant-1.7.0/src/script/ant
   /usr/local/ant/apache-ant-1.7.0/src/main/org/apache/tools/ant
   /usr/local/ant/apache-ant-1.7.0/src/resources/org/apache/tools/ant
   /usr/local/ant/apache-ant-1.7.0/build/classes/org/apache/tools/ant

Care to pick one?

Thank you.

Run as following: .\bootstrap\bin\ant -f fetch.xml
