Subject [jira] [Created] (IVY-1291) Keep older versions of ivy binaries for download
Date Wed, 11 May 2011 10:51:47 GMT
Keep older versions of ivy binaries for download
------------------------------------------------

                 Key: IVY-1291
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/IVY-1291
             Project: Ivy
          Issue Type: Wish
            Reporter: Martin von Gagern
            Priority: Minor


I've included code in my build files to automatically download ivy if it isn't already available
on the target system. For this I had to hard-code the ivy version into the download URL, it
was 2.1.0 back then. Now 2.2.0 is around, and what is worse, the 2.1.0 downloads are no longer
available from http://www.apache.org/dist/ant/ivy/

Of course I could mirror ivy versions on my own web server. But I guess I might not be the
only one who would benefit from having older versions available indefinitely. So the apache
hosts would seem the ideal place to keep older versions as well. It is somewhat strange that
the online documentation for older versions is readily available, but their downloads are
not. Usually it is the other way round.
