Yeah, a query would work, you make me realise that.

However, just going to the webpage and seeing how much in the "Depends
on" area is crossed out and how much is not is more immediate,
IMHO. (Yes, it make give too much, because that bug is fixed in that
branch and waiting for action on another branch, but I prefer to err
on the side of overevaluation instead of underevaluation).

So, different people have given arguments in both directions.

IMHO, the advantages of doing it (one way or the other) consistently
outweigh the advantages of either direction; thus I'd like us to be
consistent as a community on this question. So how do we go from here
to establish a community standard?
