Subject RE: Extremely Slow to Resolve

Ah, thanks for the info. I'm using Maven in one (open source) project, but I
chose Ivy for my last client. I've never gotten very familiar with Maven,
but I've worked with Ant a lot, so Ivy seemed like a better choice.

We're still using 1.4, though. I'll be happy when IvyDE comes out for 2.0.
