8. Adding dependencies

The inclusion of a dependency in the Platform is triggered by its usage in one of the Platform’s projects. When a new project is added to the Platform, or the Platform upgrades to a new version of an existing project, any of the project’s dependencies that are not part of the Platform will be added to the Platform. Furthermore, when a new dependency is added to the Platform, any other modules that are part of the same project will typically also be added, even if they are not using by any of the Platform’s projects. This helps to ensure that a consistent version is used across all modules of a third-party project.
