I'm referring to the bundled copy of ant with the agent, in plugins/ant.
We have a build configuration that tries to call this ant from a script (we need to call ant via a coverity executable). Rather than installing another copy of ant on all our build agents, we thought we could use the ant that comes with teamcity. But it doesn't allow execution, even to its owner.
I know i can't expect this to be changed (since it's an internal component of teamcity, and we're not using it for its intended use), but just curious why it is this way?
