Hi all!

Is there a plan to make Orchard download missing dependencies from the gallery (if found there), or prompt the user to install it (if not found there, or if a security setting requires it)? Also I think it would be beneficial to prohibit enabling a module if its dependencies are missing.

What do you think?

Yes, it would be nice. I'm not sure there is even a bug to track this, weirdly. Would you mind creating it?

Maybe this issue is related? http://orchard.codeplex.com/workitem/17295

Or should I open a new issue anyway?

It seems related, but we should have one to track the generic issue.
