Description

We have several software products which are composed of independent programs. Each version of a product refers to a distinct programs version. We manage these kind of software in Redmine with a main project which include subprojects. The problem is the version management:
  • we can set the version of the main project
  • we can set the version of each sub-project

But we cannot link main project version and sub-projects version (ie: version X of main project refer to version A of sub-project 1, version B of sub-project 2, ...)

It would be great to have this feature.

By the way, currently the Roadmap page of a main project does not show information if there isn't an issue defined directly in the project. With this feature, the main project Roadmap page could display version's issues based on sub-projects issues.

History

#1 Updated by Brad Mace over 8 years ago

It sounds like this might be better described as a Meta-Project, or as a group of projects. The Meta-project would have no data of its own, but would consolidate the data of its member projects. It might be cleared implemented this way rather than adding additional options to project/subproject settings.

#2 Updated by Jean-Philippe Lang almost 8 years ago

By the way, currently the Roadmap page of a main project does not show information if there isn't an issue defined directly in the project. With this feature, the main project Roadmap page could display version's issues based on sub-projects issues.

As of r3123, subprojects can be included in the main project roadmap view.

#3 Updated by Eric Davis almost 8 years ago

  • Status changed from New to Closed
  • Resolution set to Duplicate

You can use the changes in #465 to share a version from the main project to the subprojects.
