What is a "cascade" conflict in ElectricAccelerator?

Sometimes my emake annotation file shows conflicts of type "cascade" instead of "file". What is a "cascade" conflict?

Please see the ElectricAccelerator Annotation Guide, in particular the documentation for the conflict tag.

Can you elaborate? Seems sparse:

cascade: the conflict was a fallout from a conflict in an earlier job, or was over other non-filesystem versioned data.

what's an example of "fallout from a conflict in an earlier job" and "non-filesystem versioned data"?

Sorry, I can't really provide more detail without providing a great deal more explanation about the internal implementation details of ElectricAccelerator -- that's really beyond the scope of what's appropriate for this forum. There are a couple of other questions on Ask Electric Cloud which touch on the topic, which you can find by searching for other questions about conflicts, such as https://ask.electric-cloud.com/questions/2675/electricaccelerator-cascading-conflicts-and-pragma.html -- please be sure to use the search feature of this site before posting questions in the future!
