HI All:

What is best practice for the "depends" in the Description file,  in terms of how of how many layers down do I list depends?  For example,  if my package depends on the rerddap package,  is it best practice  to just list rerddap in the depends,  or should I also list all the packages rerddap depends on  - which can go many layers deep.  What is best practice for this?
