I'm following a course in SSIS from PluralSight. In one module, an Execute Package task references a variable in the parent task like this:

@[$Project::foo]

where "foo" is a Project variable (new with SQL Server 2012)

I'd like to know:

1. Is this usage documented somewhere?
2. are there other variable groups that can/must be accessed with the "$" format? e.g. can I refer to varialbes with names like @[$Package::Name] or @[$Parent::Name]?

I'm looking for some reference docs on this.
