from the help files:
The ModuleDependency table keeps a list of other merge modules that are required for this merge module to operate properly. This table enables a merge or verification tool to ensure that the necessary merge modules are in fact included in the user's installer database.
So looks to me you have packages that only differ in the requirements for the included merge modules. What you want to do about it kinda depends on the nature of the difference. First question is: are the included merge modules the same for both packages? If so I'd say take the package with the most stringent requirements. Imo there won't be a need to create seperate packages in this case.

We have 2 msi packages. MSI1 is packaged, and MSI2 is yet to package. MSI2 contains this extra line in moduledependency table. so can we just add this entry in msi1? As I told before everything else is same. In difference we do not find anything.

It must not be the same because on that website, they say they are "experts in Windows Installer technology". If that was the case, then PackagingTeam wouldn't be asking this question. LOL
