Hello all,

After being redirected to b3 from Buckminster, my question is whether
the scenario I presented (see below) is supported by b3. That is, does
(or will) b3 support automation of multi-phase build processes?

If so, what is the status of the implementation; is it ready for use in
real-life projects (as I read that b3 is still in the proposal phase:
http://wiki.eclipse.org/PDE/Incubator/b3/Proposal)

Thanks,
Dennis
