By modifying the artifacts pattern and specifying a src ivy pattern I can get it to work,
but it doesn't seem like it's the best way to do this.

Substituted in the value for the following 2 properties where used to make it clearer.
> project.version.main = 1.0.1
> project.version.full = 1.0.1-1

<ivy:publish artifactspattern="${dist.dir}/[artifact]-1.0.1.[ext]"

Is this really the only way to publish with a different revision?

I get the feeling I had an incorrect interpretation of how the artifactspattern, revision
and pubrevision are intended to work.

I assumed that revision would set the value used for [revision] in srcivypattern and artifactspattern,
but that doesn't appear to be true.

Using the following:
<ivy:publish artifactspattern="${dist.dir}/[artifact]-1.0.1.[ext]"

The ivy file created is dist/ivy-1.0.1-1.xml, I would have expected it to be dist/ivy-1.0.1.xml
and then to be uploaded to the repository as dist/ivy-1.0.1-1.xml.

Certainly the documentation would suggest that this is the way it should work:
"revision	the revision of the module to publish and also the published revision unless pubrevision
is set" to me sayes: the value used for the src patterns, and also for targets if pubrevision
is not set.
"pubrevision	the revision to use for the publication" to me sayes: used to publish the artifact
with a different revision to what is used to locate the file on the local filesystem.

Is my understanding incorrect?
