Subject Re: Download by using a proxy

Ivy uses the authenticator as well, AFAIK Ivy does more or less the same already than the <setproxy>
This is necessary because Ivy can also be used from the command-line or from other non-Ant
environments (like IvyDE).

Could you please post the debug output here (ant -v) when you are NOT using the <setproxy>
task? Or create a JIRA issue and post the output over there...

I agree. I think it's a clean - and valid - separation to have the ant
runtime manage the proxy so the ivy tasks can assume it Just Works. As long
as it is clearly documented in the examples.
