Hey Helder,

Thanks for your reply. I will not have the time to play with that in the
next week, but I will follow up with you!
It's correct, that you only need the metadata, but we still need to make
sure that all the dependencies are set correctly.
I will have a look at the dependencies graph as soon as possible.

Thanks for your help!

Martina
