#7411 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Split build.xml file into macrodefs in separate files

I don't really like Ant, but if you must use it, macrodefs are the way to go. It gets really messy otherwise. Macrodefs can be easily moved into different files, so you don't end up with one giant script. I've seen it before - not pretty.

I think for the jquery-ui build file they will help clarify the high-level structure of the build, make it more modular, help show what exactly is going on, reduce dupe and improve maintainability.

I've started on this and will send a pull request soon.
