Description

If there are 2 open issues related to each other with a "blocks/blocked by" relationship, then the context menu in the issue list (as well as the bulk update issue form) won't propose the user the "Closed" target status even if both issues are selected for update.

I.e. the two dependent issues can't be closed at the same time but they should.

Hardly a defect. Blocked issue can not be closed before the blocking issue is closed. Being able to close them at the same time is pretty much a feature request.

Yes, I had a hesitation indeed.

The fact is that when you're trying to close all 50 issues of a version at the same time and there are 2 tied by this relationship then you have to figure out that this is the reason why the 'Closed' status is not proposed.
