      Description

      Currently IvyDE uses the org, module, (and revision by default) when resolving workspace dependencies. I propose adding branch as an optional attribute to be matched in the workspace dependency code. For consistency with the current workspace dependency configuration, I would add an option to ignore branch in the comparison similar to the option for revision. As with revision, the default would be unchecked. This means that the default would be to compare branch attributes when identifying project dependencies, which helps guarantee the correct and most appropriate dependency match. The addition of the branch attribute in the comparison helps in the case where more than one project exists on the same module in the Eclipse workspace and another project defines a latest.status dependency on that module. The current revision comparison code fails to detect the difference between the dependent workspace projects. Therefore by specifying a value for branch in the dependency and module descriptor, a correct match is found.
