bro-pkg dependencies ?

Can we specify dependent packages in bro-pkg and would bro-pkg go and resolve
(install) those dependencies by itself ?

Also, can we make the bro-pkg dump some output (notes) before? or after? pkg
installation - something like see this file for details etc ?

At list recursively finding all of those dependencies is on the roadmap. Terry has that on his queue.

Thanks Adam!

I think we might also need to introduce the concept of pkg-conflicts too: cannot
install B if A is installed.

Yep. Here's one that does..

bro-pkg tells you that it's going to install dependencies and asks if you want to proceed. If you want to see how it works, install the corelight/top-dns package.
