It's not a question of 'allowed', it's a question of when it's actually
done. =) If you follow the regular AutoQA updates in the QA meetings,
you'll see that the depcheck test is one of the more complex to
implement and requires integration with releng. We also still have a few
hurdles to putting the AutoQA framework in general into full production
- mainly getting gwt properly packaged in a way that's acceptable for
the Fedora repos.

The timescale on AutoQA's depcheck testing going active is still
probably multiple weeks and probably a few months. That's something of a
WAG - wwoods would be able to give a much more reliable prediction - but
I think it's in the ballpark. So I don't think we're yet far enough
along that we can just say 'meh, autoqa will fix it, let's not bother
doing anything else about it'.
