The new comment in build.xml is somewhat misleading.  It refers
to setting the property before the include of,
but you place the logic and the comment before including a different
file, and after including two more.

I would suggest moving the new lines up to the beginning of the
project, at line 34.

(And, there's a type in the comment -- "fore" instead of "for".)

P.S.  Uugh to Ant syntax.
