Sorry to be talking to myself here... I got the trigger to work by
switching to <ant-build> with onlyonce="false" instead of using <ant-call>,
and now the trigger is being called.

My next issue: how to get the resultant extracted files into my build path.
Do I need to manually add each one, or is there a way for IvyDE to pick
them up automagically?

My trigger is based largely on the example in the docs. Here it is:

<ant-call target="untar-trigger" prefix="dep"
event="post-download-artifact" filter="type=tar.gz AND status=successful"/>

<target name="untar-trigger">
untar trigger:
<mkdir dir="${basedir}/trigger-out"/>
<untar src="${dep.file}" dest="${basedir}/trigger-out" compression="gzip">
<patternset includes="**/*.jar"/>
<mapper type="flatten" />

I guess my issue is, using ant-call, where can I place my target such that
IvyDE will find it?

As far as I know, triggers are called from within the Ivy core, so it
should work for both Ant tasks and IDE plugins.
Are you sure the trigger hasn't been called? Could you give more info about
this trigger and when it is supposed to run?

Subject: IvyDE and triggers?

We have some legacy dependencies in our project that are .tar.gz files, and
in some of these .tar.gz files are .jar files that I would like to include
in the class path.  Of course from the ANT side of things, this is simple,
but not so much from the Eclipse side.  I tried a quick test with a trigger
and IvyDE did not seem to call it.  Has anyone been able to get this sort
of thing working?
