It would be similar to dependency checking for rpm or debian packages.
For example,

   pkgA~1.1~ depends on:

and, for example,

   pkgB~1.1~ depends on

where pkg<name> indicates a package and file<name> means an actual
file, and ~<unsigned>.<unsigned>~ signifies the version of either
package or file depending on what precedes it. Now, how you do that
with tags, is another question, but it certainly can be done with
the method I proposed earlier using release.log's. In that case,
instead of pkgA, there would be:


where 1.1 is just the version number of the release.log file.
