That's presumably my wording.

I meant a file system subtree: a directory containing only IP
belonging to the dependency.  For instance, an expanded source

That Kevan interpreted "subtree" differently is surprising to me, and
I'm glad that the matter was raised.

Indeed, it could be a single file.  I guess that how to adapt the
instructions for "subtree" in the case of a single-file dependency
seemed straightforward to me.

I'm satisfied with the final edit which was performed.
