Date Wed, 28 Jan 2009 17:03:59 GMT

Thank you very much for your help. As soon as there is a way for me to run with this in Eclipse,
I can get my guys to test it.

>                 Key: IVY-996
>                 URL:
>             Project: Ivy
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Core
>    Affects Versions: 2.0-RC2
>            Reporter: Eric Anderson
>            Assignee: Xavier Hanin
>             Fix For: trunk
> h3. Fixing useless extra HEAD requests
> When searching for an artifact named "project" version "2.2.+" for organization "org",
Ivy attempts HEAD requests for completely not possible versions.
> IE: /org/project/0.9.2/ivy-0.9.2.xml
> This is not terribly painful unless you have thousands of builds and are not on the same
network as your ivy server. 
> h3. Are HEAD requests even necessary?
> Simply getting a directory listing should be good enough to determine if there is an
artifact (for choosing latest-release). Now, after one is chosen, if no ivy.xml file exists,
I could understand trying the next one, but trying all of them, just to select the latest
one anyways seems like a complete waste.
