This can be helpful, but it can also be the source of *evil*.
CDIST_ORDER_DEPENDENCY easily causes unobvious dependency cycles

Let's see an example. Suppose you have special init manifest where among other
things you are assuring that remote host has packages `sudo` and `curl`
installed.

CDIST_ORDER_DEPENDENCY kills parallelization
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Suppose you have defined CDIST_ORDER_DEPENDENCY and then, among other things,
you specify creation of three, by nature independent, files.
**init**
.. code-block:: sh
CDIST_ORDER_DEPENDENCY=1
export CDIST_ORDER_DEPENDENCY
...
__file /tmp/file1
__file /tmp/file2
__file /tmp/file3
...
Due to defined CDIST_ORDER_DEPENDENCY cdist will execute them in specified order.
It is better to use CDIST_ORDER_DEPENDENCY in well defined blocks:
**init**
.. code-block:: sh
CDIST_ORDER_DEPENDENCY=1
export CDIST_ORDER_DEPENDENCY
...
unset CDIST_ORDER_DEPENDENCY
__file /tmp/file1
__file /tmp/file2
__file /tmp/file3
CDIST_ORDER_DEPENDENCY=1
export CDIST_ORDER_DEPENDENCY
...
unset CDIST_ORDER_DEPENDENCY
