If your stacks are password protected then the automated detection process
cannot run as it needs to iterated over all scripts looking for keywords to
suggest what you are using (a process which is, unfortunately, not 100%

Therefore, in this case you have to select inclusions manually in the
Standalone Builder and choose the things you use explicitly.
