Dependencies on modules are not installed automatically?

I installed the Stars v1.3 content part. That went well but it apparently has a dependency on the Voting module. However that doesn't get installed automatically and enabled as well. I would expect this to be the case that whenever I install and want to use a certain module that the modules on which it depends also get installed if not already and enabled by default. This does not seem to be the case. Is this something for version next?

This is a known limitation that personally I'd love to see fixed. It's something that would need addressing in http://orchardgallery.codeplex.com as well.

+1 for having something like this. I thought it was something like Nuget and expected it to download the dependencies as well. Wrong assumption from me apparently. Hopefully it'll make it in version next.

It won't be in v next, no, sorry.
