Yes. Depends and Recommends were synonyms. The old code made sure that
no Depends will remain in the resulting control file. May be the term
"Format" is not very well choosen since the format of the tasks files
can not really be distinguished. Its rather the *interpretation* of the
file that has changed. In 1.1 it is permitted that a Depends remains
(and thus Recommends need to be specified explicitly). The only reason
why I did a global s/Depends/Recommends/ in Debian Med is that it is now
more explicit (the degraded Depends was confusing for some people).

I'll test as soon as possible. I can even test a commit before
uploading if you confirm that this is your target for an upload.
