rosdep install with metapackage


I created a metapackage wrapping some of our own ros packages by declaring a run_depend on them. When I then run rosdep check my_metapackage everything is fine despite some system requirements of those run_depend packages are not met.

I know I could change the run_depend to build_depend, but then I get a warning for doing so. So ... I want to install the system-dependencies of a whole 'stack' aka metapackage with one command like rosdep install my_metapackage and not running the rosdep install for every single package ... is that possible?
