Thanks, Enis.  I did notice that Hadoop had started using Ivy.  Do you  
know when Hadoop is going to start publishing it's artifacts to the  
Maven repo?  We are doing it now for Mahout (i.e. publishing the  
Hadoop artifacts, see

  but would really rather rely on Hadoop doing it.

I would think Ivy would allow for this and it would make Hadoop  
adoption even easier.
