Is it really worth posting about everyday dependency issues? As noted on
-devel-list, there's some kind of dependency issue almost every day,
it's pretty much par for the course. There is an automated notification
of dependency issues sent to -devel-list (and I think direct to the
affected maintainers). They're usually fixed the next day. I think
posting about them to this list would be basically noise.

Personally I'd only post about a dependency issue if it had been ongoing
for several days and it hadn't already been discussed here or
-devel-list.
