+Proxying Ivy Repositories
+The most common mistake made when setting up a proxy repository for
+sbt is the attempting to *merge* both *maven* and *ivy* repositories
+into the *same* proxy repository. While some repository managers will
+allow this, it's not recommended to do so.

+handle binary compatibility constraints of its own plugins. To ensure

+repositories, one for maven and one for ivy.
