[clue] Rake (Ruby) question posted... any experts here?

Hmmm... No, *no* .bash* file(s) get copied, and so far, the newer/older
relationship between source and target seem not to matter. *Nothing*
gets copied, as if the file-task dependency actually never gets evaluated.
"...redefining the task over and over..." -- I was initially confused by
this, and you may be on the right track. However, as I've replied
earlier (to Dave), I've cribbed this code from other posted-online
examples from guys who *do* seem to understand rake & with more
experience than me, and their discussions of this indicate that this
kind of file-task declaration (there are other, simpler forms of this
declaration type too, of course) will indeed iterate (enumerate) through
a list of source files and form correct dependencies...
...but I'll have to think about your suggestion for a bit, and try some
things out. I think that this kind of questioning is stabbing about the
heart of the matter -- I just don't see the specifics yet! ;-)
