According to http://packages.debian.org/unstable/devel/ant.html
Ant is currently not part of Debian (main). And anything that (build)
depends on something that is not part of Debian can also not be part of
Debian. But I do admit that I am not sure why ant is not in main since
it seems that all dependencies can be satisfied by free software
packages in Debian.

Are there any Debian developers on this list that know how to see what
keeps a package from main (and in particular why Ant is kept out of main
at the moment)?
