Thanks for your feedback, I will consider your suggestion. Cutting down one
demo could save some time, but not much. Basically I decided to make three
demos to keep audience awake, prefering to have several small demos instead
of one bigger one. The two first demos could be merged in only one, but I
would spend more time on it. The advantage I see to have the first demo is
that it's very simple, and show you can start using Ivy with only a 5
minutes effort if you already use Ant.

But since you're not the first to ask for Maven / Ivy comparison, I think I
will include one slide, and when adjust the time line if necessary by
cutting down some things (or adjust in real time during the talk).
