OTOH Bob's approach is normally to checkout the sources individually forIf you have cloned all the modules your application needs to build,
you're fine. You don't need to download all of them.
Indeed, you don't need west at all if you manually set ZEPHYR_MODULES
But west doesn't manage dependencies between repositories. That would
take it into package manager territory. We are staying away from that
as a design decision.
It's up to the user to either manage their application's dependencies
explicitly, or just fetch the kitchen sink. Either way, Kconfig
ultimately controls what gets built into the final firmware image.
