Subject Re: ibiblio maven2 repo in the examples/documentation
Date Mon, 04 Jun 2007 09:24:51 GMT
Hi Paul,

Indeed, we need to work on our documentation and especially on tutorials.
You're right about the repositories, Ivy used to use ivyrep as default
repository, but it isn't maintained any more, and now Ivy uses maven 2 repo
out of the box, which has a different namespace

For the removal of tutorials and adding them back when they are fixed, this
is an interesting idea which would put a high priority on fixing them. What
do others think about that?
