As I wrote above, the change is normally necessary anyway, so yes I
want that change to be published eventually.

Another thing we sometimes do is that we move attributes from the Ivy

sometimes be locally overridden. Users have a
file where they can override these properties. Something similar could
probably be done at the XML level.
