The current format of email notifications lacks the information of parent issues. I think the information is useful to know the purpose of the subtask because the subject of a parent task usually expresses a more generic concept.

Web UI already shows parent issues with indented style. I think it would be nice if they are shown with the same style in email notifications.

As shown in the image below, I think that it would be difficult to read the notification email if the parent-children hierarchies became deep, so I added "Parent task" in the issue attributes of the notification email.

I attached a patch.

Thank you for posting the patch. I am not sure if it is appropriate to add a method to Issue model just for email notifications.
