For development lifecycle I would recommend writing your own
You should then ask the two teams (IvyDE and Eclipse-Ant-PlugIn) for
extension points. 
If your adds are more generic you also could provide patches for these
two plugins.

IvyDE is in the repo of Apache Ant

The Ant plugin is, as Jeffrey said, part of Eclipse itself (plugins
org.eclipse.ant*, org.apache.ant is 'just' Ant itself - without docs).

Funny. dev@ant was created for the development of Ant and was widened
for the development of Ivy + IvyDE after their joining ;)

You have all the developers here at dev@ant: Ant, Ivy, IvyDE - and some
Eclipse-Ant developers are also listening.
