Ticket #176 (closed enhancement: duplicate)
|Reported by:||dread||Owned by:||dread|
Description (last modified by rgrp) (diff)
(Related to ticket:169 - Package derivations)
A 'dependency' relationship can be applied from one package to another. It implies that a package requires the download or existence of another package which it 'depends on'. (Analogous to software package dependencies.)
e.g. london-traffic-visualisation depends on road-map
'Dependency' relationship is:
'dependency' table columns:
- id (primary key)
- dependent (foreign key)
- dependency (foreign key)
- WUI - package view - have list of dependencies (do not need to list packages which depend on this one)
- WUI - package edit form - new option to say 'depends on' (no need for 'has dependent package')
- REST api - expose reading and writing 'depends on' property.
- How do we deal with dependency at a particular version?
