I guess that's because the license of this jar doesn't allow to redistribute it.  You have
either to find an other
repository that distribute it (I don't know if there is), either put it manually on your repository
(which is rather
annoying because it is exactly what you are trying to do...)

You are right.  But I'm not sure Ivy could do something else.
