Thank you for your response, there is just a point that I don't

- when we add a package to environment, all of package inputs will be
added to the environment.
- using --ad-hoc switch, package itself will be present in environment.

now I want to know add a series of packages using --manifest, add them
directly to the environment (like --ad-hoc), or add inputs for each
package to environment?
