As proposed in this forum-thread (http://www.redmine.org/boards/3/topics/7093) it would be nice if we could (at least) add items to these contextual "menus" using plugin hooks.

I'd suggest to interpret the proposal done in the forum as: "please add a hook like :view_issues_show_contextual".

I assign it to you Eric since we've disussed the feature over IRC and because you are the unofficial "maintainer" of the of the hooks-implementation in Redmine... :-) Correct me if I'm wrong... :silly:

I am stepping down from working on Redmine. If someone else is interesting in working on this issue, feel free to reassign it to them.

+100 :)

This feathure really needed for plugins.
Current method is creating own _action_menu.rhtml, but this is way for conflicts with another plugins.
Example: changeauthor plugin & close issue button plugin

as i see this is really easy for implement. It will be excellent if this feathure will be added into next redmine's release
