Subject Branch Management

I have a couple of questions about branches in Ivy. I have searched high 
and low for any information on it but cannot find it either on mailing 
lists or on internet in general. Searching for "ivy branch" brings up a 
lot of gardening references.

Apologies if I have missed something obvious, or am just being stupid 
but I can't get my head around this at the moment so would appreciate 
any help you could give.

What is the purpose of branches in Ivy? I presume they are related to 
branches in version control systems but cannot find a concrete example 
of how or why you would use them.

How do they affect conflict resolution? e.g. say thanks to transitive 
dependencies I have two modules, com.acme#dynamite;1.0 on branch1 and 
com.acme#dynamite;1.0 on branch2 is that a conflict? I presume that it 
is. If so how is it resolved, in favour of branch1, branch2 or neither 
it just fails.
