You're going to want to distribute via Planet at some point, so I
suggest you stop working with directories in  PLT-COLLECTS and add
'development links' to the Planet cache.  You can do this with the
planet command line tool.  You basically tell your local copy of
planet to make a symlink from your local cache to a directory you
specify.  As Planet has a concept of versions this might make things
simpler for you.

As for constructing require specs, you have two choices: macros or

BTW, for some reason I think you're in the UK.  Is this the case
[pawfal.org doesn't say]?
