That's #3 actually; propose a new external dependency (same as you do
when you want to increase a new one).
I know the process is still imperfect (e.g. I think we didn't do a
feature request announcement yet, we should clearly announce which ones
are 'accepted' + should've monitored the progress on accepted features).
Result is that it that the 'rules' are unclear. I think in the end
focussing on features instead of external dependencies is better. But
I think the thought is still underway.
Risk for the feature focus is that the external dependencies "rules" are
forgotten. E.g. I noticed that gnome-boxes increased its libosinfo
version requirement in 3.4.1. That's not so nice when distribution is in
a version freeze.
