Catkin Problems on sourcing workspaces

I am currently trying to source multiple catikin workspaces but I mostly get only one to work, which is the last one I include.

What is the problem there?

It was working most of the time but, right now it does not anymore. When it was working I always had to include one workspace after another one. If I reverted the order only one of them was found.

But now I am always getting only one workspace to work.

Any idea what's the reason for that?

It should never have worked with multiple workspaces. You can only source one workspace at a time.

If you want to use multiple workspaces in one, you have to overlay these, i.e. source the dependent workspace at built time before the first build.

Ah yes I found that out now too, I need to source the one first which was built first. Because the second one depends on the first one when it was sourced on build time. I just adjusted my build script for that and now it seems to work.
