Getting Antsy with Phing

Earlier today, I set to work on an open source project...pulled down a copy from github, and started reading through the code.

And there I found a build.xml file.

At first I didn't think anything of it - plenty of my projects have ended up using Ant for setup, builds, CI and other myriad tasks.
