add Ivy report

  === Ivy ===
+ Project name - Ivy
+ Description - Ivy is a dependencies management tool mostly used in combination with Apache
+ Date of entry - October 23rd, 2006
+ Remaining item to resolve:
+    1. Trademark checking - it's still difficult to know if Apache Ivy is a good name according
to trademark rules   
+ The top three items to resolve in last report have seen very good progress:
+    1. Growth of commiters - We are now 3 commiters from 3 different companies and background
+    2. Release - We have made our first release approved by the incubator PMC, and are currently
preparing a second one
+    3. Growth of community - The Ivy community is growing, we see more and more contributions
in many forms: feedback on the mailing lists, documentation and code patches, articles, ...
+ Community aspects:
+     * Gilles Scokart has join the team of commiters
+     * Xavier gave talk at ApacheConEU, which was a good opportunity to discuss with several
Apache commiters and members, including especially people from Ant and Maven
+     * Ivy is seen in the press more often (see
+     * We have had discussion on our dev mailing list about our road map for upcoming releases
+     * Discussion about remaining steps before graduation, one of the last remaining points
seems to be trademark checking, which we have started investigating, including by asking questions
to the general@i.a.o and legal-discuss@a.o lists.
+     * We have agreed on targetting Ant subproject for graduation
+     * We have reviewed our site to make it indexable by google (our previous version was
making use of a lot of javascript preventing web crawlers to work as expected), checked and
fixed all broken links, and isolated site from documentation to be able to provide online
documentation history
+ Code aspects:
+     * First release done, a second one is currently in preparation
+     * Our development efforts focus on the integration with maven repository, and bug fixing
+     * We have agreed to use Sun standard Java coding style, and have started to clean the
code base to adhere to this coding style consistent with other Apache projects like Apache
