Dependency trees on issues
It would be very helpful if you could set dependency relations between issues, like this:
- Issue A depends on Issue B
This means: A can only be started, after B is finished
- Issue B depends on Issue C
B can only be started, after C is finished
-> B and C are blocked
-> A needs to be finished first
It's an m:n relation between issues, with possible conflicts:
- If A depends on B, and B depends on C, C can't depend on A
-> That would cause and endless recursion, no issue could get started
With that dependency tree, you could plan easier, and hide issues, which can't be solved right now.

There's already such a feature in Redmine, you can add "Related issues" on each issue's page (under the "description" section), with various dependency options. Can you explain what's missing in current feature ?
Ok, I'm sorry, I'm new with Redmine and I've found that feature.
