Hi Bruno, it is currently not possible to specify dependencies from other Tool Sheds. So you can only depend on packages that are in the same Tool Shed as your tool.
Is this your main issue? Greg has some nice blog posts about the Tool Shed and how to set up a local test Tool Shed with other packages, like the one from foobar. http://gregvonkuster.org/ Cheers, Bjoern > I'm attempting to create a tool dependency definition file for ExomeCNV, > which notably depends on R (I'm trying to use the package_r_3_1_1 > repository).
