But that's not meant to be used by individual developers, is it? It's
the tool used by the meta-tizen maintainer for refreshing a whole bulk
of packages based on their .spec files.

So the question becomes: should Cynara be added a) that way, b) by
writing .bb files manually, or c) not be included at all yet?

In my opinion, b) is better than a) if someone is willing to do it. I'm
unsure about c) - isn't Cynara already a dependency of some other
packages, and if so, why are those not needed for the current "Tizen on
Yocto" build?
