an approach that doesn't put redundant dependency information inside the 
modules and doesn't spam them with updates to that info would have been 

for example, the information that a build with updated dependencies is 
required can be stored as an annotation in the commit message (that's 
exactly what zuul does, afaik), and the incremental propagation of the 
dependencies can be done in a "shadow" branch of the qt5 repository 
(technically, that could be a single gerrit change that gets 
progressively updated).
