Option not to block closing a parent issue when it has open subtask(s)
|Target version:||Candidate for next major release|
I saw that: r16108.
But actually, it could be great to be able to close a parent task.
Is it possible to allow this in the "configuration" of Redmine? For example:
"Allow a parent tracker to be closed even if the sub-task aren't: YES/NO".

Thank you for writing the patch. The feature is beneficial for some users.
But I think it is better to change the setting name because "Close parent issue when its subtask is open" looks like a setting to automatically close parent issues.
The following is my idea. Comments are welcome:
- "Allow closing parent issue which has open subtasks"
- "Allow closing parent issue whose subtasks are open"

I agree with Go MAEDA to change the setting name to "Allow closing parent issue whose subtasks are open".
This is new patch.

Regarding this feature: I tend to agree with Mitsuyoshi Kawabata that I'm not seeing clear use-cases where it is logical to have closed parent issues with open subtasks. I'd like some more feedback on this matter.
Though, if the decision is made to add this configuration option nevertheless, I'd propose the following T9N for the string
setting_close_parent_issue_whose_subtasks_are_open: "Allow closed parent issues with open subtasks" and a similar I18n string and setting name.
