Subject Re: workaround to consume legacy Ivy modules
Date Tue, 18 Oct 2011 18:00:36 GMT
Just a thought... maybe instead you could write a resolver that contains a
nested, normal resolver, and applies a configured XLST stylesheet to all of
the ivy.xml files it downloads. Then what you want to do would be an easy
specific case.
