Yeah, the conf="production" line is effectively
conf="production->production" (I believe) i.e. it says "when I ask for
'production' from foo, grab the artifacts from springbeans that are
marked 'production'." Since springbeans doesn't have the production
configuration, it fails.

Check the generated ivy.xml for springbeans (in the ivy cache) and
change your dependency attribute to something like

So the <configurations> element define which configurations THIS module
(foo) publishes/requires, whilst the conf attribute on a dependency
refers to those that the DEPENDENCY publishes.
