Blocked or Following Issues
There must be a way to avoid closing or resolving an open issue before its preceders and blockers are resolved or closed.

IMHO open predecessors should not block issues from being closed. Imagine a case where we have two issues:
Not sure if an open predecessor should block issue from being closed.
- an issue (issue #2) which relies on a function which is implemented in issue #1 (therefore the issue is preceded by issue #1)
- the predecessor (issue #1) which implements a new function.
If the following state is true than open predecessors should not block issues:
Issue #2 is fully implemented but only the documentation needs to be completed. In that case the issue -done can be set to 90. The actual function is implemented though thus the predecessing issue (issue #1) (which is preceded by this issue ) should be closeable at this stage.
I guess this is something that can depend on everyone's individual workflow. My opinion is that Redmine should be kept as flexible as possible. Therefore I'd say to keep actual issue-blocking a feature of the blocking issue-relation only. Though, YMMV...

It would be great for us if an issue can be marked to be closed conditionally. For example blokers must be closed or certain %-done level is reached for each related issue or all, there may be some restrictions and of course this feature can be toggled (on/off) from projects settings and/or system wise settings.
And it would be great if some checklist for issues and cattegories. We can check/uncheck standart procedures and each check determines the progress of issue and %-done level.
Issue #xxx: Stereotype: yyyy [OK] Todo blah blah 1 (%30) [..] Todo blah blah 2 (%10) [ ] Todo blah blah 3 (%50) [OK] Todo blah blah 4 (%50) [ ] Todo blah blah (%10) [OK] Todo blah blah (%50) Done: 85% (30% + (50% of 10%) + %50)
