I thought I'd just use an ant property for this. Then everyone is 
responsible for defining the property according to his setup.
The src/examples/depender example does it like this too.

Bummer. I thought exactly the same thing. It's unclear from the tutorial 
how to change the settings.
I guess you just do so by setting 'ivy.settings.dir' and place your own 
ivy-settings.xml there.

Have a look at the src/example/depender project, this was pretty easy to 
understand (well not all of it, but..)
