I mostly live behind the corporate firewall and only pop out now and then. I have had similar issues when I want to discover what or how a module is used in an app. In the end I wrote mod-dep-mod. Which my friends and I find useful as you can run it locally and point it to github to search the dependency tree when you cannot actually install locally.

I appreciate the article, I often these pointers really helpful as we get comfortable with what we think the commands do and stop investigating, and I had not heard of either till this morning.
