Hi Wim,

if switched off all properties that change version ranges to be relaxed.
Please give the new nightly build a spin [0].

But even if this fixes your problem, I'd still argue that the target
editor is broken. Just its inability to handle relaxed version ranges
(RVR) is simply not an argument that RVS are a no-go per se (cyclic
reasoning).
However, from the bug it appears as if the power that be are working on
putting a simultaneous release policy in place that prevents RVR anyway
for Indigo. So if we want to be part of Indigo, we would have to revert
the build back to how "things have always been done". (Why is ECF
exactly part of Indigo again? Just extra work and little or no gain. And
do our consumers really benefit?)
