Description

Follow up to #22316/[57545].

On the plugins screen, there should be a help tab added about plugin dependencies.

This potentially could be linked to in admin notices and other scenarios where users are notified that something is not right with their current set of installed plugins.

Just checking in here since there hasn't been any progress here and we're approaching the RC phase. Do you think this is required and still feasible for 6.5? Any help needed?

@adarshposimyth could you please quickly add your patch in the ticket so we can see if it can be quickly committed before RC1 or not? Otherwise I'll punt it to milestone 6.6 at the top of the hour since we'll reach the commit freeze hour :)

Now, basically this well be a new help option in the help tab... But where do we place it? Do we place it in the plugin section? In the install section AND/OR the plugin overview list?

In general looks good to me. This line needs attention from my point of view:
In case plugin activation link is disabled, this is due to missing required dependencies for the said plugin.
Shouldn't it be:
plugin's
and here:
this is due to missing required dependencies for the said plugin.
Maybe it would be better to change the said to:
related or specific or mentioned

I'm not the native, so definitely experienced eyes are needed.

Thanks for the feedback, I wish someone would proof-read it and give me final copy so I can update my PR ;)
