That looks reasonable. But shouldn't it look something like this,
submodules in parentheses:
Eclipse runtime (java runtime)
DWT (Eclipse runtime)
This is how the dependencies look like. Read "->" as depends on
Java runtime ->
Eclipse runtime -> java runtime
DWT -> Eclipse runtime, java runtime
JFace -> DWT, Eclipse runtime, java runtime
snippets -> JFace, DWT, Eclipse runtime, java runtime
All of these dependencies are not direct dependencies.
I mean, if the Eclipse runtime repository doesn't contain a submodule
for the Java runtime it can't work on its own.
