repository will be created with a lot of stuff that is not really needed in the end. How difficult
is to create an 'empty repository' and fill it with the right contents? (your Perl script
is definitely useful, same as the ant task to publish to the new repository).

I think we're saying the same thing. I didn't mean to suggest that you 
copy the *entire* contents of the SpringSource, Jboss, or Maven repos 
into yours, just that you use ivy:install to copy your public 
dependencies from one of those repos (use the main Maven repo as a 
last resort, as its metadata is truly inconsistent). So everything in 
your repo should be necessary -- a dependency (direct or transitive) 
of your project.

Ivy will create its own ivy.xml from poms, though you may desire to 
edit it, if the current metadata is a mess.
