Can an addon contain other addons inside?

Hi, I’m trying to create an addon which depends on other addons.
But I need to make some changes to these addons for the compatibility.

In this case, can I just put these modified addons inside libs folder so it can be for example, ofxMyAddon/libs/ofxOtherAddon?
Or is there any strict rule not to put other addons inside one addon?

you can include other addons into your addon header. Then you need to include/add them into the project generator when your create the project for your ide platform.
If you need to modify an addon you can make your github fork (push your changes…etc) or just store your modified copy (to not lose your changes in case you want to rebuild your project in another computer or in the future).
