I may be wrong, but I believe that 'package' in this context means what you
mean by 'dep'. You still need to fetch the dependencies and you don't care
about another tool because (I guess) you are using rebar which implements
this thing. My understanding of this package manager thing is that it
separates this functionality, unifies the different features that rebar,
mix, hex, agner etc have and makes it available so that we don't need to
reinvent the wheel.

If I got it wrong, I'm sure that Bruce will correct me :-)

regards,
Vlad
