Mixing fixed percentages for issue statuses with variable percentages
Although it is already possible to assign fixed percentages to a certain issue status, it would be nice to maintain the flexibility of being able to manually assign completed percentage.
For example: we use fixed percentages such as 100% for closed tickets, but like to assign manual percentages to indicate progress where needed.
Percentages and statuses really differ per project type and the current mandatory or/or option really makes it a bit less flexible.

It'd be helpful to link certain field values with each other. For instance I've a required custom field for "what to do next" with values like "test", "prototype", "implement", "design", "write documentation" and "closed" and when I close an issue it'd be nice if Redmine could automatically set this field to "closed", as well as the % done to 100.

+1 We just hit this issue, we turned on assigning ages based on issue status, and now the manual capability is gone. We use two %'ages we want auto set, 90 and 100% for certain scenarios, and the rest we leave up to the developers so as not to have too many issue statuses and keeping it simple.
