Dependency Checking Complete!!

I finally finished up both the shallow and the deep dependency resolution for sinan. This took a bit of time and effort to conceptualize, abstract and implement.

Now given a list of apps and the dependencies (along with the url(s) of the repo); like this

[{app1, "0.1", [{edoc, 'LATEST'},
{syntax_tools, "1.5.0"}]}

It correctly returns a list of all the dependencies required for the project; like this

[{stdlib, "1.14.2",

If it runs into a version conflict it reports what the conflict is and what applications are causing it.

In the output above. Each entry is a dependency, its version and a list of apps the depend on that app.
