Since Apache Ivy and Apache IvyDE are sub-projects of Apache Ant there is some sense in EasyAnt
having a place in the Apache Ant project. I see that dev@ant did VOTE for sponsorship on a
thread that you started [1], but I did not see a lot of discussion about what made sense to
the Apache Ant community.

A few months earlier you pushed for the donation of Bushel into Ivy [2] which was done. 

I see that EasyAnt has an old Google Group ML and this thread describes the process from the
EasyAnt community's perspective. [3]

There is mention of Apache Ivy in the incubator four years prior, and we know it ended up
within the Apache Ant project.
