I'm not sure I understand the story. This is what seems to have
happened:

* the sbt developers created a fork of Ivy 2.3

* either their changes looked to them unacceptable for Ivy, or they
  didn't want to contribute their changes to the upstream or they just
  didn't care. In either case they decided to maintain a long term fork
  over asking the Ivy devs to change Ivy so they could use an unpatched
  version.

Why would the Ivy developers want to maintain this fork for sbt?
