Subtasks or stories
Do you plan to build functionality to allow to create subtasks or stories? It is very useful functionality which I noticed eg. in Xplanner application (www.xplanner.org).
So the story (big task) #1 "Add to accounting reports new product" consist 3 atomic tasks eg. #1.1 "Add new product to accounting report A",
#1.2 "Add new product to accounting report B",
#1.3"Add new product to accounting report C".
Tasks #1.1, #1.2, #1.3 are the real tasks that are assigned to developers and the #1 is the story that consist 3 tasks. It if useful that I can see the progress of each task and also I can see the progress of the story - so what is the progress of the story/big task #1.

I'm working on a plugin that does story decompositions It's originally based on Scrum Alliance's Redmine plugin but I'm tweaking it's UI and finishing it up. It's only a prototype and is still under development so I don't recommend using it quite yet. If I can find a stable solution, then we can consider bringing it into the core.
