Subject RE: What is special about the master configuration
Date Mon, 21 Jul 2008 16:21:34 GMT
Actually I think ivy:install somehow maps this into the generated

<conf name="master" visibility="public" description="contains only the
artifact published by this module itself, with no transitive

What is the reason for choosing this particular name to represent this
particular configuration?  Does it provide compatibility with Maven or
is it something Ivy-related?

The page
describe a transitive attribute to put in the ivy file for 1 specific
dependency.  Is it what you are searching for?
