One more point, this is related to darcs:

Basically, darcs allows you to establish (or rather, itself establishes)
relationships between patches, so that if you retrieve patch-11 which is an
enhancement over patch-8, it would retrieve both, patch-8 as well as

The author has compared darcs to arch in this case, showing where darcs
shines over arch. Has this been implemented or is it in the pipeline?
Purely text-based dependency tracking? That's implemented in an aba script: rev-deps. It produces a list of the textual dependencies of a patch, so actually applying those particular patches is mere grunt-work.

I thought at first you were talking about something which could be guaranteed to actually work, and text-based dependency tracking can't do that.

The immediate approach is to simply create a branch containing patch-8 and patch-11. See my archive address@hidden/tlasrc--greedy--1.2, which contains interdependent greedy-library patches, for example.

Christian has proposed a way of tracking feature dependencies:
