It definitely doesn't seem to describe current practice. It looks like
it got applied because the commit description bears a somewhat strange
relation to the actual text that was added: The commit talks about the
original script that used to forward to stable (although it got me and
hpa confused) which seems to refer to a tiny deletion and the rest is
adding an Ingo one off proposal for dependencies.

For the record: Greg runs his own script now and I'm not involved.

Current process (at least from the SCSI centric view) is that if we
screw up and forward a commit with missing dependencies to stable via a
cc: tag, it won't apply and Greg tells us to fix it, which we do. That
seems to be an adequately functional process for the odd times we run
into this.
