Testing confirms that packages labeled "dependency" are those which are installed only because they are dependencies of other packages you have installed. The package manager actually won't let you uninstall a dependency (as doing so would break the package that requires it). Similarly, uninstalling an "installed" package which is also a dependency of ...

I can't tell you what it means (I can guess, but you'll probably get a good answer here). But I can tell you how to ask Emacs about it, in case you don't already know. Usually the Emacs doc provides such info (it should). C-h f list-packages gives you a brief description of the command. C-h r puts you in the Emacs manual. There, i list-packages takes you ...

I have not found a builtin way to accomplish this "easily", so I wrote the following two functions which can manually be invoked to change the status of all todo states in a subtree to CANCELLED and back. You can use undo right after cancelling to reset it but this won't work some days later, therefore the uncancel-function. IMPORTANT: This includes ALL ...

use-package is a macro around require. Macros are expanded before code execution. The purpose of a macro is to create syntactic sugar to make code easier to read, understand, and maintain. Your different alternatives have minimal effect to the execution time. In the end, it is a personal choice which one you prefer. I use mostly the :after key for terseness, ...

It is actually explained in the docs that it is possible to simply override the enforcement of todo dependencies by using the C-c C-t command with triple prefix argument: C-u C-u C-u. Also, there is no need to set all the subtasks individually to CANCELED state, as the archive-tag archives the entire subtree, which removes all the subtasks from the agenda.

Have you seen Karl's article on org-depend? http://karl-voit.at/2016/12/18/org-depend/ I think that I'd try to use org-gantt and taskjuggler to create an overview for more complicated task blockades https://orgmode.org/worg/org-tutorials/org-taskjuggler.html Maybe that's a bit too much, where I'd try to graph with dotty maybe.
