Hi Georg,

the caretaker system can work completely without the caretaker_instance.
We have a setup running with only external test-services so it makes
sense to keep caretaker instance optional.

Same here. Not every caretaker-server needs a frontend.

We will discuss the adding of those dependencies internally. It could
make sene to set them since it will fit the needs of the most users.

The documentation is currently WIP we are very happy that we have found
a volunteer for writing it but it is not finished yet. Adding a
php-module check to the update method is a good idea. I doubt that i can
set module dependencies in ext-configuration, so a php check could at
least create a better error message.
