Does it require that the dependencies be rebar compatible as well. Right
now I am having exmpp which doesn't use rebar and I guess doesn't have
the directory structure suitable for it.

With exmpp installed in default erlang search path, it's not an issue for
me at least during development but frankly I would be more happy with a
sandboxed environment similar to Python's virtualenv. Glad that rebar
downloads and builds dependencies local to the project. Will try if it
works
for non-rebar-compatible libs too.

Thanks for your reply, it helped a lot :-)

Regards,
Vineet
