[erlang-bugs] SSH-1.1.8, incomplete application reference dependence

This issue was addressed earlier when a suggestion was sent via Git. The 
short version is that pulic_key (currently) doesn't contain any processes, 
i.e. only a set of library functions. Thus, changing ssh.app.src so it 
would list pulic_key as an application that must be started before SSH is, 
would not be a backward compatible change (it would be necessary to add 
application:start(public_key) in ones code). This could cause problems 
during a hot code upgrade. I'll consider this change for R14B.

Best regards,

Niclas @ Erlang/OTP
