The practice of embedding dependencies within bundles is really bad, it
implies duplication where two activities share a dependency, or, in the
case of multiple architectures, bloat. Finally it makes it nearly
imposisble to account for bugs and vulnerabilities.

Once upon a time Aleksey Lim proposed the "recipe" specification to
overcome activity.info deficiencies. I wonder if it would be possible to
reuse some of his work:


I saw it working in alpha verision. Currently Hexoquinasa OS image
package list is built in part from dependencies declared in recipe files.
