You mean that org and module are the modules having completely different 
artifacts? That doesn't seem like a good idea. You're meant to have 
different module names for different ivy files (obviously ivy files 
change over time (revision) and potentially branch, but they are still 
the same logical module with the same artifacts).

"2.0-" doesn't match the documentation for version < 2.0 (is that what 
you were trying?). I think you need:

All artifacts for a ivy file have the same revision number anyway, so 
I'm not sure that would help.

Why not rename the module rather than the jar? As far as I can tell, the 
jar and the war are not part of the same module, so why give them the 
same module name? The artifact names need not change in order to change 
the module names.

I hope this helps - I may have missed the issue.
