Subject Re: conf mapping documentation contradicts itself

Yeah, I think I am just reading it oddly. When you say "The ivy file defining
the dependency" you are meaning the ivy file where  the relationship to the
dependency is defined whereas I was reading it as the ivy file defining the
artifact of the dependency (i.e. the other ivy.xml file).

I think that is where my disconnect was.

I am probably just being a dumb ass, it happens on occasion.
