Thank you, Kostis! This is a good point, of course. If there is a
requirement on some way to specify dependencies which can not be specified
1) the use of 'applications' and 'included_applications' in the .app file,
2) the order of applications as specified in the .rel file or the 'rel'
statement in the reltool config
we will be very happy to receive a proposal - or even better - a
contribution. However, for now I think we will just settle for correcting
the bug which messes with the order of applications during reltools
processing of 'rel' specifications.
