The shell-script will take in a host and a list of rpms and/or jars. For the rpms, it will extract the jar files to a cpio archive, then copy the jars to the repo.
So for example, if you download antlr-2.7.6.noarch.rpm from jpackage and want to add the jars to your ivy repo, it’s as simple as this:
./dist-jar.sh --host ivyrepo.foobar.com antlr-2.7.6.noarch.rpm
DONE! Next step is to make this a little less dependent on our internal buildsystem so that it is useful for other ivy users.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone.
