#3004 Replace “Reference tickets” by “Starred tickets”?
#4427 A “nicknames” plugin
#1516 Add a “parent” field to ticket
#2384 Kanban for Jane
#4427 has at least two disadvantages: Adds complexity. Can be replaced by a list of recently active tickets. Requires every user to maintain their nicknames.
#1516 says “I seem to remember that I had this in the ticketing system in TIM, and that I deliberately decided to drop this, because it caused problems for reporting. Until now tickets are designed to be “atomic” units for project management.” but I doubt whether problems for reporting still holds. Yes, reporting becomes more complex because the client will want to see a summary of all their top-level tickets, together with the sum of invested time (including time on child tickets), but that’s not a problem in an SQL database.
One advantage of #1516 would be that top-level tickets would be the “goals” of a Kanban board and that we can easily convert any ticket into a top-level ticket (or the opposite: convert a top-level ticket to a child of another ticket)
