Subject Re: ivy settings, include, and offline mode

Hi Scott,

I don't think you can get ivy:include to ignore this error.  You
could, I think, get the functionality that you want with 'ant copy'.
If you keep a copy of the ivysettings.xml in your project somewhere
and ivy:include that.  Then in your ant script try to copy a new
version each time and ignore any errors:

	<copy file="file:/c://.../ivysettings.xml"
tofile="${basedir}/etc/ivysettings.xml" failonerror="false"/>

We do something similar except with 'get' from a URL.
