Does data constraint comments affect the build?


Konstantin Aladyshev
 

Is there any value in data constraint comments in the INF file? I mean
these:
```
## SOMETIMES_PRODUCES
## CONSUMES
## SOMETIMES_PRODUCES
## PRODUCES
## TO_START
## BY_START
```
Are they purely informational? Do they affect the build process in any way?
Can they break the build somehow?

They are not used by the build process, so for that they are comments. I think they are used for package management, so they are meta data for managing packages.
