Hello Todd,

requests concerning the public maven repository are entered at this
location :

There is also a discussion list

and this web page should
be one of the references.

Yes, there is an ivy publish task. My project is using ivy a lot, and we
are creating our own ivy descriptors for all third party jars that we
use. In fact, usage scenarios vary from project to project, the precise
list of jars that you want to use when using a particular third party
can change across time ... there are lots of reasons to maintain one's
own project repository. It takes time to create one's ivy xml files, but
when it is well done it saves time.
