Subject Re: ivy:retrieve with empty dependencies results in all files in target dir.

Hello Albert,

is it possible that you retrieve when building project B the dependencies of project A because
the fileset did not get overwritten ?

you might want to try to reproduce your problem on a small number of subprojects, for instance

You can run ant with the -debug option, maybe you will understand better what is going on.

If you do not find, try sending in your email some gists of your build files and ivy files
and ivy settings files and then someone will figure that out.

Have a nice day,
