Subject How to exclude sources when building using Ant

I have finally managed to successfully integrate at least a beginner's

Now I am getting the imports I need (and some I don't actually need)
using ivy:retrieve in Ant. No objection to having the license files, but
I really don't need the *-source-*.jar files (which are, however, in the

I'm not quite understanding how not to retrieve these files during my
build. Any suggestions would be welcome.
