Subject [jira] Issue Comment Edited: (IVY-1003) Add support for transitive retrieval of source and javadoc artifacts

-------------------------------------------------------------------

At the moment, transitive retrieval of javadoc and source jars is only possible by manually
adding all artifacts as individual dependencies to the ivy.xml file, which is both tedious
and error-prone.

> Currently, IVY only supports retrieving 'jar' artifacts transitively (using the 'transitive'
attribute of a dependency), as documented [here|http://ant.apache.org/ivy/history/trunk/ivyfile/dependency.html].
> It would be very nice if IVY would also support transitive retrieval of the source and
javadoc artifacts. 
> This would require two extra attributes for the dependency element:
> * transitive-source
> * transitive-javadoc
> To ensure backwards compatibility, these attributes should be optional and should default
to false.
