Subject ibiblio maven2 repo in the examples/documentation
Date Thu, 31 May 2007 22:24:52 GMT
First of all... I'm new here but I like what I see so far. I'm following the
directions in your documentation but it seems somewhat outdated. For
example:

The first quick start tutorial (
http://incubator.apache.org/ivy/doc/tutorial/start.html) references
http://repo1.maven.org/maven2/ but under that directory, there is no
apache/commons-lang directory:

[ivy:retrieve]
http://repo1.maven.org/maven2/apache/commons-lang/2.1/commons-
lang-2.1.jar
[ivy:retrieve]          ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
[ivy:retrieve]          ::          UNRESOLVED DEPENDENCIES         ::
[ivy:retrieve]          ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
[ivy:retrieve]          :: [ apache | commons-lang | 2.1 ]: not found
[ivy:retrieve]          ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
[ivy:retrieve]
[ivy:retrieve]
[ivy:retrieve] :: USE VERBOSE OR DEBUG MESSAGE LEVEL FOR MORE DETAILS

It is actually here:
http://repo1.maven.org/maven2/commons-lang/commons-lang/ (which I think
looks wrong)

Secondly I was looking at the build-repository tutorial (
http://incubator.apache.org/ivy/doc/tutorial/build-repository.html?action=print)
and that works but you can see in the repo that the
http://www.ibiblio.org/maven/hibernate/jars/ dir only goes up so far in
versions before it stops. The newer versions of hibernate are in
http://www.ibiblio.org/maven/org.hibernate/jars/ I think this means it works
for now, but I can't get the latest version.

So... it seems that your tutorials/documentation are a bit out of date. I
would also suggest writing your documentation assuming that people have
little to no knowledge of maven2. If you want to talk about maven2 repos
because ivy depends on them, then some back history on how the repos have
grown over time, why there seem to be two places where the artifacts are in
them, and the relationship between ivy and maven2.

Perhaps deleting all of the documentation/example projects and adding them
back once they have been vetted for accuracy would be a good idea. It would
be nice to ensure that new users/developers (like me) are learning the
state-of-the-art ideas. Less is more!

Thanks in advance!
