First build questions -- working with "import .xml" files

OK, I am new to building software and taking over someone else's build scripts. I have read up on building with Ant. This previous owner has tons of <import file="blah.xml"/> files in their mainbuild.xml script. How is this handled? (Sorry, learning Ant, builds, and xml all at the same time...)

He had NO startbuildActivity in his scripts, so I am trying to start placing them in the right place to see what is happening.

Include just means he is assembling the complete build file from incremental parts. 

Sometimes this makes the build script easy as the parts are usually self contained.

The use of includes does not affect the rest of the build design.

This question would be better directed to the Ant user mailing list.

startbuildActivity is just a hook to communicate status back to RTC; it's not necessary.
