I've never used svnAnt, and based on the lack of responses I see on
this list, I'd say no one is maintaining it either. I am getting
close to booting it from the repository as it reflects poorly on
Subclipse that people think the two are related.

A problem I could see with SSH and Ant, is that SSH often requires
some form of interactivity. If your SSH client was configured so that
it could just connect and work with no interaction, I'd expect it to
work. Of course the Ant script would have to run as the right user
with the right HOME folder etc.
