Option to inherit Issue Category list from Parent project to Sub-projects
I don't think this is currently possible. (if this is please explain how this is done).
Having a standard "issues category list" user selectable inherit option, for sub-projects would avoid a lot of re-keying and data errors & break-by reporting issues.
This would be useful where project issues / tasks are used for process (or lifecycle) tracking ...

The route most people seem to be taking for inheritance is copying a project, from the Administration -> Projects page. If you're frequently creating projects of certain types, it's helpful to build (or designate from existing) a template project to serve this purpose.

What's more, on version summary when you Show version details in road map and then in "Issues by" you select Category there appears the same categories multiple times:
- category1 (id 1)
- sub project of project1
- category1 (id 5)
In result you'll get
category1 twice if you selected the same version for issues.
