For development lifecycle I would recommend writing your own
EasyAnt-Plugin.
You should then ask the two teams (IvyDE and Eclipse-Ant-PlugIn) for
required
extension points. 
If your adds are more generic you also could provide patches for these
two plugins.

IvyDE is in the repo of Apache Ant
http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/ant/ivy/ivyde/trunk/

The Ant plugin is, as Jeffrey said, part of Eclipse itself (plugins
org.eclipse.ant*, org.apache.ant is 'just' Ant itself - without docs).


> I know this is the dev mailing list for IvyDE but, am not sure about
Ant. 

Funny. dev@ant was created for the development of Ant and was widened
for the development of Ivy + IvyDE after their joining ;)

You have all the developers here at dev@ant: Ant, Ivy, IvyDE - and some
Eclipse-Ant developers are also listening.

The correct mailinglist should be platform-ant-dev@eclipse.org.
