Subject ivy:install deletes files out of my repository. ?
Date Sat, 15 Nov 2008 01:12:31 GMT

I'm trying to use the ivy:install task to pull modules from maven into our 
local (p4 managed) repository.  But when I use overwrite=true (to ease 
pulling large dependency trees such as spring-*) the ivy:install causes files 
to vanish.  In particular jars.  In some other cases the jars are "installed" 
as zero-byte files.  There must be either a bug or something wrong with my 

(from ivysettings.xml)
      <filesystem name="ivycontrib_m2">
[ext]" />
pattern="${ivycontrib.dir}/m2/[organisation]/[module]/[revision]/ivy.xml" />
	  <chain name="public_m2">
		  <resolver ref="ivycontrib_m2"/> <!-- to prevent needless downloading of 
stuff we already have. -->

		  <!-- official maven2 repo -->
		  <ibiblio name="maven2" m2compatible="true" />
(from build.xml)
  <ivy:install from="public_m2" to="ivycontrib_m2" module="${module}"
  revision="${revision}" transitive="${transitive}" organisation="${org}" 
(cmd line)

install -Dorg=org.springframework -Dmodule=spring-jdbc -Drevision=2.5.4 -Doverwrite=true


So, this all causes a frustrating and endless cycle of removing or truncating 
jars.  What could I be doing wrong here?

Thank you,
