Subject Re: ivy settings, include, and offline mode

Offering a little different perspective from Geoff...

I'm presuming you're using Ivy from within Ant. In that case, remember that
you can put ${} Ant property placeholders in your ivysettings.xml file. You
should know when you're online and when you're offline, so define an Ant
property in the master ivysettings.xml file:
ivysettings.location=*real_location*

Then when you're offline, you can set this property sooner and set it to an
Ivy settings file at a local location or just a dummy ivysettings.xml.
Ideally, you would specify this "override" property in a properties file or
Ant script that does not get committed to source control.

I'm sure there's a bit slicker variation on the approach I'm describing.

Ideally, IMHO, an imported ivysettings.xml file should only be at a
remote/network location if it happens to be co-located with an Ivy
repository at that location. So if you're not able to reach the Ivy settings
file, you're also not able to reach its associated repository. And in that
case, you have to address the larger question of how to make do without that
particular repository.
