I am trying to make a TODO item dependent on another TODO item from a different heading and while searching for this feature, I stumbled upon org-depend.el.

From the official site docs it seems that I can do exactly that using the BLOCKER/ID properties, but my problem is that I can't seem to find org-depend.el and using (require 'org-depend) gives me a "cannot find file" error.

I have looked inside the org-mode repository and the file is not in the lisp folder. Is it dead?


org-mode Repository

org-depend Official Doc


It is in contrib: it is not officially supported but it is available e.g. from the Org mode repository in the contrib/lisp subdirectory.
