Subject [jira] [Created] (IVY-1392) Optional <include> ivysettings directives

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

             Summary: Optional <include> ivysettings directives
                 Key: IVY-1392
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/IVY-1392
             Project: Ivy
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Core
            Reporter: Yanus Poluektovich
            Priority: Minor


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.
