[erlang-questions] erlpass issue

Mon Nov 30 21:09:00 CET 2015

Hi Fred,

Hope all is well and life is giving you many grins. Sorry to bother you, but I've run into the following mystery with erlpass:

I've configured erlpass as a dependency in different two Nitrogen apps--- wgb and wgc.

Here, respectively, are the two rebar configurations:


    {erlpass,          "",    {git, "git://github.com/ferd/erlpass",                    {branch, master}}},


    {erlpass,          "",    {git, "git://github.com/ferd/erlpass",                    {branch, master}}},

To my eye they look to be the same. But, when I execute make, wgb compiles:

make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/lloyd/wgb/lib/bcrypt/c_src'
==> erlpass (compile)
==> nitrogen_tinymce (compile)

But wgc doesn't:

==> erlpass (compile)
ERROR: compile failed while processing /home/lloyd/wgc/lib/erlpass: {'EXIT',{badarg,[{io,format,
                     [<0.24.0>,"Dependency not available: ~p-~s (~p)\n",
make: *** [compile] Error 1

And I'm stuck. Any thoughts on how  clear up this strange state of affairs?

All the best,
