Checking the code, it seems that some extra attributes should be available, but maybe not
those that you'd like...

The extra attributes which are available in pre and post resolve-dependency are the extra
attributes you have on your dependency declaration, not those declared in the module descriptor
of the dependency.

For the pre-reslve-dependency event, we can't do better, since before resolving the dependency
we don't have the module descriptor yet. In the post resolve dependency, we could improve
Ivy to put the extra attributes declared in the resolved module.

Since it's so easy to do I've just checked in a change in Ivy which should make these extra
attributes available in post-resolve-dependency. Could you check it works for you? Whatever
the result, could you please open an issue in jira at least to ask for documenting this?
