    We went through a similar thing with AxKit and dependencies.

    I've come full circle with it in a way - at first I just shipped everything - and I think that made things easier for a while. Now in AxKit 1.6 everything got ripped out - it's a bad thing to ship with all the dependencies.

    • TBH I'm quite happy shipping with low dependencies and low functionality. One of the points we've always tried to stress is that OpenFrame doesn't force you down a certain path, and it feels more like we're meeting that design goal with completedness-at-shipping with this sort of layout.

      I can understand that its nice to be able to install something out-of-the-box and have it all work 100% but in reality I'm not sure that you're ever going to get that with a OpenFrame -- its not what it tries to be at all.
