You can use even -debug if verbose is not enough. The reason is usually that
Ivy doesn't find appropriate metadata. It may happen that this is only
cache's fault, so clean your cache and try again. If you still have trouble,
check your ivy cache after a resolve, and check the ivy file generated by
ivy for your dependencies. If they you see a default="true" attribute Ivy
has not found your pom. The debug log at least should tell which attempts
Ivy does.

One thing I think about, since you are using poms with an url resolver, it's
a good idea to tell ivy to use pom as extension. Replace your ivy pattern by
this one:
<ivy pattern="file:${user.home

Last, I recommend using a file system resolver instead of an url one when
using file based repository. It allows to get revision listings.
