For example we have lots of dependency loops in the 'requires' fields in

It is the job of the package manager to detect and avoid such loops. No database is perfect - it is up to the good programmer to account for an deal with problem

have cross dependency:

$ cygcheck cygMagickCore-6.Q16-5.dll | grep auto

$ cygcheck cygautotrace-3.dll |grep Q16
