      Description

      This is in relation to the new "extends" functionality in 2.2.0-rc1.

      When publishing an ivy file that extends a parent ivy file (using the default setting of merging the files), any extra attributes get dropped. This happens regardless of whether the extra attributes are in the child ivy file, parent ivy file, or both.

      Ideally, all extra attributes would undergo the same merge process as all the standard attributes (allowing them to be inherited from parent to child. But at the very least, they should not be removed from the child ivy file.

      Example:
      info section in original ivy file

      <info module="core-util" e:sourceurl="${svn.info.url}" e:sourcerev="${svn.info.wcversion}" e:user="${user.name}">
          <extends organisation="our-organisation" module="our-parent" revision="latest.integration"/>
      </info>
      

      info section in published (merged) ivy file

      <info organisation="our-organisation" module="core-util" branch="trunk" revision="2.2.51-SNAPSHOT.r30249" status="integration" publication="20100714140802">
          <!-- <extends organisation="our-organisation" module="our-parent" revision="working@mycomputer"/> -->
          
          <!-- description inherited from parent -->
          <description></description>
      </info>
      

      As you can see, all the "e:*" attributes have been dropped.
