Right now there's a single permission allowing a role to fully edit an issue. But a common way for using issues is that the assignee would change the status of an issue when a commit happens, so they need this permission, but they shouldn't be able to also edit the priority or version or other properties of an issue. So there's needs to be a separate permission that allows editing the status of an issue, which then follows the workflow settings.

Is this the thing you're looking for?
You can set, if the field is read-only by role, tracker and status...

That's probably overkill for what I need, but it looks like it should be right. I'll check it out when I can get IT to upgrade our install. We're still on 3.0.3. What version did that appear in?
