Project Dependencies

By creating dependent projects, you can efficiently manage parallel projects that share most of their configuration and differ only by a few options. If project B depends on project A, any change made to project A for an option not overwritten by B will be transmitted to B.

For example, assume that a project named tutorial2 project is created, based on an existing project named tutorial1 project, which itself is based on the default core project. Therefore, tutorial2 inherits all of the settings of tutorial1 (for example, render.form=tutorial1-form) and subsequently all the settings of the core project that were not changed by tutorial1 (for example, render.display-urls).
