If we want to install a custom xBlock or a Django app, we need to put them into private.txt. Being able to specify the requirements directly in
config.yml is a neater / simpler approach. For example - in e-commerce one can simply specify the requirements in ECOMMERCE_EXTRA_PIP_REQUIREMENTS and the packages get installed during the docker image build.
Can we have a similar
OPENEDX_EXTRA_PIP_REQUIREMENTS config? So that we can specify dependencies directly in
config.yml? And this will also make the way of specifying extra requirements consistent across images.
