There is a public "sandbox" repo that the Ivy project manages. Our Ivy 
build file is set up to use it, but as you will see from Tim's mails, I 
inadvertently commented out this section of the config. If it's not in 
there it looks in the iBiblio Maven2 repo.

Yes, there is talk on the Ivy lists, but nothing concrete and it has 
stalled. I'm going to start a discussion over there when I can. Having 
them in our SVN is temporary (and is no more wasteful than having a lib 
directory anyway).

In the interim I plan to move the repo out of 
forrest2/core/tools/ivy/repository and into whiteboard/ivy/repository. 
This will make it useful to other code in Forrest, including trunk/main.

That repo looks pretty complete, I'll add it to our config, in 
preference to iBiblio. Thanks for the pointer.

Have you done svn up since Tim pointed out I'd commented out the remote 
repo stuff? It works for Tim now.
