Thats why projectsForUrl() returns a list of projects ;) (or should, if
it doesn't do so yet)

Yes, project dependencies will be managed too, but not via the buildset
directly. The buildset is there to get a number of targets in one or
multiple projects build at once without all of them depending on each
other. For example if you often switch between two different projects
its easier to have the built both all the time, instead of having to
switch between what is built now.


You are sick, twisted and perverted.  I like that in a person.
