Description

Imagine situation:

I am working on feature A. I am doing it several days, updating %Done, filling time log, writing comments, uploading files and so on. I finish it. But now I see several other features/bugs that are based on feature A.

But if I add A.1, A.2... as subtasks of A, I lose Time tracking, Due date, % done and other features.

So for example,

Total Hours of task should be Sum of all subtasks total hours PLUS task's own total hours

  • Priority changed from Urgent to Low

Ok, so don't do that. Move A into a more global issue for instance. The actual feature is actually here to compute those calculations for you, and it would be a bit difficult or inefficient to do what you propose. It's not really a defect for me, it's just we don't use subtasks the same way.

Finally I don't think there's anything urgent here. Maybe it could be addressed in a later version. Thank you for reporting.

This one is more likely a feature request.

But anyway... is this by design?
If we want to let this option, we should display some warning that these informations will be lost.

What do you think?
