Description

The document and file tabs for a project should include all the documents and files attached to sub-projects, similar to the issues tab.

Ideally these should be separated by sub-project headings eg.

Project

document
document
document

Sub-Project 1

document

Sub-Project 2

Hi Aaron, this is not inheritance but accumulation. Inheritence and accumulation across related projects is a very promising feature that must be carefuly discussed. For documents and file I also think a couple of checkbox « show parents » (inheritence) and « show children » (accumulation) would do the job.

Hi Paul,
Yes, this is an improved idea of how accumulation an inheritence should work. I'd also like to see issues and versions be able to be inherited by sub-projects, but that's getting a bit complex.

We're looking at Redmine for overall project management here, rather than just for software development, and we're finding we need projects to be more aware of the state of other projects.
