If you mean people posting here "me too" notes about dependency
issues then I would agree.  OTOH broken dependency information in
"rawhide report" notes is absolutely vital.  Without it I would be
left to a bad guesswork if problems which showed up are caused by
some troubles on my test system, which happened for assorted
reasons, or are indeed recognized and proper notifications were
sent.  Besides other things a serious hit on my time budget.

Also it did happen occasionally that some broken dependencies were
not automatically noted and this was a good reason to file bugzilla
reports.  Without information you are reducing options to filing
about every broken dependency, which is a pretty bad idea, or
totally ignoring the issue.
