I'm not sure that I understand everything here... Do you mean that with my
proposal reltool will *see* some applications which it shall not include in
the release package? And that the fact that some of these applications have
modules with equal names causes problems when building the release package?

If so, is it not possible to write a reltool config which specifies which
apps/modules to use - and by this avoid conflicts? Sorry for the stupid
questions - I just feel like it would be good to understand the problems
completely...
