    How long was the plugin activated for? Note that it can take a couple minutes for the scripts and stylesheets to be minified, and if you have a lot of dependencies to process and if you're on a shared host, it may slow down your site.

    You should remove or increase this rating. The plugin is going to cause an increase in load whilst it's building the cache and if you don't setup a caching system for the resulting file itself, then that would probably slow your site down too. Those aren't deficiencies in the plugin, it's just how it works.

    If you want to avoid those problems, then you would be better off with a different concatenation plugin, but that doesn't reflect badly on this plugin since this is what it is intended to do. The Minit plugin may in fact be more suitable for you if you don't like these aspects of the Dependency plugin ... http://kaspars.net/blog/wordpress/new-plugin-minit
