There is no documentation for the moment, here are some basic explanations
of how it works for the moment:
When it find a jar artifact to add in the container, it looks for another
artifact with the same name and with a "source" type, and attach it as
source if it finds one. The type (source) can be configured.
So if you want to have source attached you should have an ivy file like this
one for your dependency:
<ivy-module version="1.0">
    <info organisation="thisorg" module="thismodule" revision="1.0.4"/>
        <conf name="default"/>
        <conf name="sources"/>
        <artifact name="myartifact" type="jar" conf="default" />
        <artifact name="myartifact" type="source" ext="zip" conf="sources"
Then if you depend on it like this:
<dependency org="thisorg" name="thismodule" rev="1.0.4"
conf="default->default;dependencies-sources->sources" />

And if you resolve both the default and the dependencies-sources
configurations in IvyDE, you should get the myartifact.jar in the container
with sources from attached.
