Subject Re: Example of Recursive Delivery?
Date Fri, 19 Sep 2008 19:12:23 GMT
Oh, and contrary to what the docs say, it seems that setting
"" doesn't set a global deliver status.  If I
set this property, I don't get prompted for the dependency delivery
status (good), but it does not deliver the dependency using the status
specified in this property.  For example, setting it to "release"
still results in a delivery of the module with the status set to
"integration" (it tells me this in the console as well).  The weird
part is, if I look at the "dependency.published.status" property in my
task - it says "release" (huh?).  But if I check the delivered Ivy
file, the status is "integration".

This seems like a bug to me, but I could be misunderstanding something.
