I also use the branch attribute in my patterns, but despite this, I think
it's a good idea to always have different revisions for each release even
across the branches. IIRC, there are some Ivy functions which don't work
well if you have the same revision in different branches. 

About branches, they're useful in that you can get the latest.* revision
from a given branch. For instance,

<dependency name="mymod" org="myorg" branch="release_1"
