Provide a 'required' attribute to ivy settings/properties element to control reaction to missing
properties file
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: IVY-1074
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/IVY-1074
             Project: Ivy
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Core
            Reporter: Jeff Glatz
            Priority: Critical


we use ivy in our company and have our repository under version control which is checked out
alongside our projects. our setup is designed to work when run from builds on an integration
server, on developer's machines, and from under IDE plugins for IDEA and eclipse.

because the repository checkout will vary based on environment, we expect that a property
called 'libraries.root' is defined and points to the individual repository location. when
run from ant, this value is provided as a build property. the issue arises when ivy is run
from the plugins because 'libraries.root' is never set.

to facilitate this, we use a single ivysettings.xml file which does the following:

{code:xml|title=ivysettings.xml}
<ivysettings>
   ...
   <properties file="${ivy.settings.dir}/${user.name}.properties"/>
   ...
</ivysettings>
{code}

to load a properties file for the user where 'libraries.root' is defined.

the problem is that there are cases, such as when run under the integration server, where
the user will not have a properties file. in this case, the configuration blows up. i propose
adding a 'required' attribute to control the reaction to a missing file:

{code:xml|title=ivysettings.xml}
<ivysettings>
   ...
   <properties file="${ivy.settings.dir}/${user.name}.properties" required="false"/>
   ...
</ivysettings>
{code}
