Subject Re: Broken tutorial

It's not actually broken. The tutorial intentionally uses (and 
documents) it to explain how the repository is built and what happens 
when certainartifacts aren't available and also for cases like where 
there are version conflicts for the same module. The tutorial page[1] notes:

As you can see the installation has failed, if you look at the log you 
will see that there are missing artifacts on the source repository. This 
means that you will need to download those artifacts manually, and copy 
them to your destination repository to complete the installation. 
Fortunately Ivy uses a best effort algorithm during install, so that 
everything gets installed except the missing artifacts. (Note: these 
missing artifacts are not in the public maven repository due to 
licensing issues)
