we had problems downloading a jar file I don'remember which one. I think it is not aproblem to add a resolver. Ivy take resolvers in order they are defined so if everything is in jboss ivy repo, it will never use maven repo
i want to know and evaluate dependencies when they are introduced. Also I want our ivy repo to contain all the infromation on which components have dependencies on which other libs.
That is something that is not going to be the case if we allow for deps to be resolved in external repos.
