Knife ignoring dependencies

My knife seems to not be alerting about missing dependencies?

grep depends cookbooks/rew_idxdb/metadata.rb

depends ‘apache2’

knife cookbook upload rew_idxdb

Uploading rew_idxdb [0.1.0]
Uploaded 1 cookbook.

ERROR: Cookbook rew_idxdb depends on cookbook ‘apache2’ version ‘>= 0.0.0’,
ERROR: which is not currently being uploaded and cannot be found on the

Why am I not getting this error now?
