I don't really know what I think about that...

On one hand, I think the traffic on Ivy mailing lists deserves its own
mailing lists. Moreover there isn't much overlap between the subjects of
both user lists: ivy-user is most of the time focused on dependency
management discussion and not too much on ant related questions. One other
(minor) thing I like is that in Ivy we have notifications e-mail separated
from human traffic (ivy-commit vs ivy-dev), which is not the case in Ant,
and I prefer keeping things separated.

On the other hand, merging mailing lists would help ant users adopt ivy, and
also help make the Ant+Ivy community a single and stronger community.

So I don't know what I really prefer, maybe it's something we should ask to
our (Ant and Ivy) users on our current user mailing list?
