Custom version field that allows filtering versions in the list of options shown by "version's attached custom field" values
I would like to be able to have two different type of versions in a project. Software versions and Hardware versions.
We have created a new custom field attached to versions which is a List with 2 options: HW, SW.
When we create a new version in a project, we select if it is a HW or SW version.
When someone creates a new defect issue we want the system to ask the user to introduce two different versions:
1. Affected Software Version: it must show a list with ONLY versions marked as SW
2. Affected Hardware Version: it must show a list with ONLY versions marked as HW
Currently redmine only allows to filter the list of versions to show in a custom field by state of the version and it would be nice to be able to filter the list options by fields attached to the version.

This issue appears very different from the issue #18560 . However, the same solution can follow.
Basically, you can have a 'custom field' "Type" for each version. And then, when you define any other custom field (for issue or otherwise) which is of type version - it should ask for criteria as "field name" and values can be some conditions. If the field type has multiple values it can be selected which ones applies. The versions qualified under that condition will then be appeared in the corresponding version field.
In specific you will have 2 custom fields: HW version & SW version. When you are defining 'HW version' - Version-type will be HW and vice-versa.
