Subject What are publications in Ivy?
Date Sun, 28 Feb 2010 08:50:36 GMT

I'm reading about Apache Ivy. 
Ivy is a dependency manager that maintains a local repository and copies the
dependencies to the project's lib directory. 
I didn't understand what is Ivy publications. 
Building, packaging a project/library are Ant's tasks and are written in Ant
build files. 
So, what are Ivy publications and for what are used? 
One more thing: 
What does this patterns attribute means? 

<ivy:retrieve pattern="${ivy.lib.dir}/[conf]/[artifact]-[revision].[ext]"/> 

Thanks for help and time.
