Auto dependency builder

by Alexander Bersenev for Gentoo Foundation

Gentoo has ~15 000 packages only in official tree. Almost each package has a dependencies. Presently, developers of packages specifies them manually. I intend to build a tool for generating a list of dependences automatically and checking a fullness of existing lists. This tool will be useful for developers of packages and will enable them to make user's experience better.
