In reply to Loris:

The normal mode of operation is for RiscPkg to install the package(s) requested along with any other packages needed to make them work, all in one operation.

I dare say there will be an option to turn off dependency resolution. It is also possible for a package to 'recommend' or 'suggest' other packages, and I hope to include support for these relationships at some point in the future.

There will be a status bar to tell you how many packages and how many megabytes you have selected before you commit to downloading them.
