Subject Including builder resolver in ivy
Date Mon, 05 May 2008 17:04:38 GMT
I'd like to propose that the new "builder" resolver be included in ivy. In
order to do this however, other developers need to vote yes or no. So I'd
ask that you please let the list know your opinion.

Quick summary:

The Builder Resolver is a new Ivy resolver that supports downloading,
extracting and repackaging (as necessary) artifacts on-demand. It allows for
a clearer separation between two jobs which don't necessarily go together:
maintaining Ivy meta-data, and hosting the actual artifacts. In addition,
it's easy to use the builder resolver to build a normal repository
containing artifacts.

The most important aspect of this new resolver is that it makes it much
easier to create and maintain a public Ivy repository, something that IMHO
is sorely lacking right now.  And the Ivy RoundUp project is already doing
just that (note Ivy RoundUp is a completely separate project from ivy
itself).

This has also been discussed recently in a couple of threads
(here<http://www.nabble.com/Ivy-RoundUp-Repository---feedback-requested-td16704469.html>and
here <http://www.nabble.com/Open-source-ivy-files-project--to16437122.html>
).

Thanks for your feedback.
