The verbage when modifing a bug:

Bugs that bug X depends on
Bugs depending on bug X

is easily confused.

how about:

Parent Bugs
Child Bugs
Comment 1 User image Terry Weissman 1999-09-28 13:43:59 PDT
I don't like that either, because it doesn't describe what kind of parent/child
relationship this is.

I don't like the existing words either, but I haven't heard anything I like

It's the extra word "Bugs" on each line that are the troublesome part...
in each case the is to the left, but stands for the list of bug numbers
to the right, of the phrase, only confusing an already topsy-turvy human 
parsing job.

How about:

Bug X depends on:
Bug X blocks:

I think everyone can figure out that the numbers after the colon in each
case refer to bugs and complete the statment.

OK, done!

per Terry, auto-verifying any resolved bug that hasn't been touched since before 
2.10 was released.
