      The following is from one message in that thread:
      A resolver that wraps another resolver but also can invoke an ant build script for a dependency if an Ant script is available. The build script would be invoked at most once per build for each dependency. Something like this:
      1. Need latest version for dependency "A".
      2. Is there an Ant script for dependency "A"?

      • If yes: invoke script if it has not yet been invoked for this build
        3. Call wrapped resolver to actually retrieve the published artifact(s).

      Note: I don't think this would apply if a specific version is being referenced - only if something like "test.integration" is being referenced?
      The trick then would be to figure out if a) a dependency has an Ant build script, b) where the script is located, and c) what target to call on the script.
      Then, all I do is tell Ivy to resolve in my main Ant build and it will do the rest to ensure that all my dependencies are up-to-date.
