> To allow for VCS-friendly customization of dependency resolution process, a feature that
allows for files referenced in an <include> directive of an ivysettings.xml file to
be missing without it triggering an error.
> With such a feature, it would be possible to write a global ivysettings.xml file that
references a default setup of resolvers/repositories for a project, commit it into a VCS and
then never edit it. Instead, an "optional include" directive will point to a file with standardized
name, say, ivysettings-local.xml. The file may be missing (which results in the project-default
configuration being used), or a developer can create such a file and define an alternative
resolution configuration for his own use. The VCS can be configured to ignore the ivysettings-local.xml
file, thus absolving the developer of the need to ensure manually at each check-in that the
file is not committed into the VCS.
> Currently, a similar feature is implemented for properties files. Unfortunately, it is
impossible to, for example, override a project-default resolver with a user-specific one only
via use of properties.
