How is this different from Bugzilla? There you also need to create the bug first, and then set dependencies.

In fact Phabricator allows you to "Create Subtask", which carries CCed people and priority to the new subtask, which saves you one potential step.

Rillke: I'm also wondering (see Quim's comment). Or is this a duplicate of T58? Could you elaborate?

Closing for now. If you disagree, please reopen.

Nemo, in Bugzilla you can't set dependencies when creating a bug. You also do it in a second step.

@Qgil: If I go to (for example), I have a field "Depends on" and a field "Blocks". Do you mean something different by "dependencies"?

I use this feature to avoid having another mail sent for the change; IIRC I've also seen this used for pre-set bug templates (= links for potential bug reporters that pre-set components, dependencies, etc. so that bugs end up in the right place).

Alright, I had missed the "Show Advanced Fields" until today.

As far as I'm aware we haven't filed a request upstream. Should we?

It is cumbersome and annoying, but I don't think this should block us from Day 1 of using Phabricator, so I'm going to move this to the "Wikimedia Phabricator Maintenance (after Day 1)" project.
