I manage a library that is made of multiple components, there is some dependencies between some of these components, for example I have a core library for common code base that is referenced by other components. All of these components (including the core one mentioned in the example) are then packaged and pushed separately to a package manager for other developers to use. Backward compatibility is maintained when building any new version. So an assembly X who depends on assembly Y of version 1.0, won't have problems with assembly Y of version 1.5.
My question is, while all of the components evolve, how do I manage this network of dependencies to generate a matrix that says that version 1.0 or older of assembly X depends on version 1.0 or newer of assembly Y etc. Is there a well known approaches to manage this problem? I don't want to reinvent the wheel.
