A dependency is a piece of work that relies on another one before it can be worked on or completed. 

In Waffle, an issue can be the one "requiring" another issue or it can be the one that is "required". 

If an issue is blocking another one, you'll see the "🚫 Requires" under that issue.

If an issue is blocked by another one, you'll see the "⚠️ Required by" under that issue.

When you close an issue that's blocking another, you'll see a completed check mark ✅ on the issue that was blocked indicating that it is no longer blocked.
