We want to have subtasks assigned to be delivered in different Target Versions.
This doesn't seem to be possible - Redmine ignores any change of the Target Version for a subtask and sets it to be equal to that of the parent task.

It will be even more difficult to calculate version progress, don't you think so ? Why don't you use issue relations instead of subtasks ?

The reason I would like this feature is that sometimes we have to pull a small part of a larger ticket out of a particular release, even if the main ticket remains in the release. Currently we have to remove the parent/child relation before we can move the subticket to another version.

Calculating progress isn't as difficult as suggested: It's simply the average progress of all tasks assigned to a version that don't have a parent task assigned to the same version. The same holds for estimated times.

Having issues subtasks on different versions would help us a lot with the following use-case (for agile development):
- multiple product-projects (holding the backlogs)
- one sprint project - sprints are versions in the sprint project
- general user stories to track overall progress in the product-projects are assigned to product versions.
- more specific sub-user-stories that are assigned to sprints (target version)

It is not only affecting subtasks, also story and all the related tasks. How did you organize the tasks of a story if you can not set different target version - by time instead of context - is there a workaround for agile development?
