I hope this is the proper place to ask newbie questions, if not,
please direct me.

I'm looking at the source of rake.rb and it looks like rake doesn't
pay attention to whether prerequisites were executed ok before
executing the task itself (in invoke_with_callchain: 'execute' just
follows 'invoke_prerequisites' and both don't seem to raise any

How can I stop invocation of dependent tasks? By raising an exception
from the prerequisite action?

Thank you,
