That all sounds fine to me.  BTW, here are the notes from
last week's POC meeting regarding this:

4.  Dependencies for CGLE apps; should we include these with CGLE?
    After discussion, accepted proposal was to:

    -- provide a separate area on CGLE site
         as central dependency package repository.
    -- include source (mandatory) and binaries (optional)
         along with a README mapping projects to
         dependency packages.
    -- on each project site, provide list of dependencies,
         direct and indirect (whole dependency tree)
