We've discussed this previously on the ML. Perhaps best motivated by a short reading from "SBT 0.10: Amateur Hour"

gseitz: in sbt-0.10, how can I make a setting in projectB depend on a setting in project A?
gseitz: scalacOptions <+= (packagedArtifact in projectA) map (...) did not work, because packagedArtifact is not initialized in the settings graph
retronym: (packagedArtifact in Compile in projectA) ?
retronym: gseitz: that unitialized error usually means you are missing an axis in the scoping
gseitz: retronym: i see, didn't know you can change the "in scope", but it's still uninitialized
retronym: try: packagedArtifact in packageBin in projectA
gseitz: still uninitialized :/
retronym: boooo
gseitz: retronym: though the setting name that sbt believe's to be uninitialized looks good
retronym: gseitz; you need the task, config, and project axes filled
retronym: TaskKey[Unit]("foo") <<= (packagedArtifact in Compile in projectA in packageBin) map { (x) => println(x) }
gseitz: retronym: genius, thanks
retronym: not sure how to discover it in the console
retronym: but in Defaults.scala, you'll see stuff like
retronym: lazy val defaultConfigs: Seq[Setting[_]] = inConfig(Compile)(compileSettings)
retronym: packageTasks(packageBin, packageBinTask)
retronym: def packageTasks(key: TaskKey[File], mappingsTask: Initialize[Task[Seq[(File,String)]]]) = inTask(key)( Seq(…))
gseitz: ah, there it is. easy to overlook

Clippy might have popped up and suggested that "it seems like you're trying to refer to ..."
